Registration for online global magazine
For circulation of ONLINE global magazine in India which has its base in UK, do we need any kind of registration in India legally? What is the procedure?
Online magazine is just like starting a website and does not require any specific licensing as such. As websites can be based anywhere with no territorial restrictions, same goes for your magazine, apart from the fact that you’d need to follow certain India specific steps to start the online magazine-
Once you submit domain request along with all these information, the registrar will initiate the registration process and send all these information to the registry.
The registry will then store all the information provided by you and update your domain zone files in the master servers which would contain information regarding the web-location of your online magazine. This updating would be the final step of domain name registration for your online magazine.
Also make sure that the name and mark selected for the magazine is unique as any resemblance to an existing magazine can lead to legal complications in the future.
Starting an online magazine is a simple process in India unlike publishing of physical magazines, which have much complex procedures as compared to online magazines. With these two steps you can ensure smooth initiation and functioning of the magazine.
