I am planning for a startup and I am the only person going to develop the idea and work on it but as I'm currently employed I can't be a part of it based on my current employment agreement, so I'm sharing and asking my friends to help and support both technical and some financial. And I'm planning to register the LLP or Private company on their name. So later point in time, may be after 2 years I want to take up the major share of the LLP or Private company which is being registered now, how I can achieve it by protecting the intellectual property of my idea from now?

You can hire employees and can get your business idea copyrighted under your name. In India, the Copyright Office does not offer any comprehensive website registration service and every time on the website will be required to be registered separately and hence would require separate applications. This means that you cannot possess a blanket copyright over the entire website. But, over its various components.

Copyright Registration and the grant of certificates are governed by the Copyright Act, 1957, and Copyright Rules 2013. The Copyright Office provides for an online mechanism to get your copyright registered and it has to be accompanied by a certain amount of fee.
