HOW DO I COPYWRITE MY MUSIC?
Registering your copyright establishes a public record of your copyright. This makes it easier to take legal action against an act of infringement.
The U.S. Copyright Office (http://Copyright.gov) can provide you with the information and forms you need.
To register an audio work you need to fill out Form SR, send the U.S. Copyright office a check for $45.00 and send them two copies of your product. You can review the steps and download Form SR from http://www.copyright.gov/register/sound.html.
To register a video work you need to fill out Form PA, send the U.S. Copyright office a check for $45.00 and send them one copy of your product. You can review the steps and download Form PA from http://www.copyright.gov/register/performing.html.
