Now auditioning Rising Stars worldwide, for new releases and Live Performances!

I have copyrighted songs with the Library of Congress through the years. I have sent handwritten sheet music with lyrics,vinyl records,and cassettes through the mail,and recently,I filed my songs electronically. I know there are many ways to approach this,and I am certain there are pitfalls to avoid. I helped a studio customer copyright his CD recently,and we got it all filed collectively with one $35 fee. That was 10 songs and even the CD cover art was copyrighted all at the same time. Doing it this way also copyrighted the sound recording just for one fee! Would anyone care to share their own experiences and/or wisdom on this subject?

In my "mundane" life, I am a paralegal in the field of Intellectual Property (trademarks and copyrights). So, although I don't have experience copyrighting any of my own intellectual property, I do have experience with filing U.S. copyrights for others and the laws governing U.S. copyrights. It's only been in the last year or two that people have been able to file copyrights electronically (before that, you had to download a form and file a paper application). The advent of electronic filing has made the copyright process much easier for people to be able to do it themselves.

While I cannot give "legal advice" (because I am not a lawyer), I may be able to contribute to this discussion about the actual copyright process in the U.S. and how to electronically file a copyright, etc.
I believe that is the SR form.I have been looking @ this alot lately as a member of ascap .Pretty much covers everything although SR is short for sound recording which in some cases does not cover a "File" or download as it is not a sound recording but an net file.
Any sales over seas artists must become member of Sesac .
