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. Read More

Copyright can be enforced for commercial use of non propitiatory property. But as you claimed, you used the s/w for learning purpose only, then it is exempted from copyright or any other IPR LAW. You need not worry, if you have used it for knowledge, research or learning purpose, You write a letter to the concern authority of the Autodesk and let them know what was your purpose behind using the previous version and now you do not require it. Even if they did not act or reacted to your letter/email and forced to to buy the licensed copy then you can use this letter/email as an evidence to show your bonafideness in Court. Read More
