You should maybe point out that the creator of a piece of music automatically owns the copyright for it (and a lyricist owns the copyright for the words) and that the methods illustrated are ways of proving that you own the copyright.
I was going to put that in it but I just wanted to make the post as easy to uderstand as possible.
If roger wants to add to it, its fine by me.
Actually that FAQ as it stands of dubious factual accuracy in places... :-/
Well to elaborate, I'd need to practically re-write the whole thing,
which would take at least half-an-hour of my oh-so-very-valuable time ;-)
I delibratly made the thing as basic as possible. If you search the web for how to copyright music you get these endless pages of useless shit3 and legalities when all you really want to know is how to bloody do it!
well, it might be worth it if you can add important stuff David!
and where's that union/orgs FAQ anyhoo?
I know I know y'all,
I will try and get round to it eventually........
There, I did one on MCPS.
I trust it is suitably ahine.
I shall attempt to do a similar one on the PRS,
and MU, and stuff....
......in due course...
