As I work with more and more songwriters, I get asked this question: "How do I copyright my music, for real?" That's a good question and I do think it is important because it will raise the professionality of you as a songwriter (or band). Even in today's ecosystem, you still do need to officially copyright your songs and register them with the United States government. I was recently helping one of my songwriters copyright her songs and I decided to document the process and post it for anyone else that is considering the same thing.
“What do I do once I record my music?” This is the essential question I get asked a lot because most of the musicians I am working with are newer to the music industry. Even my experienced musicians do not have lot of time to look into all the next steps, because they are busy making music.
I decided to put all of the experience that I have gained in regards to this question here in one blog post, so that it can be a helpful reference for all of my musician friends. This is not an exhaustive list of tools.
