About Copyright your Music
Are you a musician? Bang out a nifty tune? Whistle a few notes?
Don't let anybody hear your music because that individual will rush to the Copyright Office to register your creation. Now, you'll have to pay him/her each time you play the song!
Unless... you get the copyright first!
Copyrights are not expensive or difficult. It only costs $35 to submit an application to the U.S. Copyright Office.
The purpose of this app is to point you in the right direction towards protecting your original musical composition or sound recording.
View the basics of musical registration, including the difference between musical compositions and sound recordings, the type of copies needed to submit, what is the best edition, the basics of musical copyrights, and more.
A second tab provides the foundation of copyright law in general, such as infringement and the registration process.
