Thread Name: Tech: How do you register song copyright?
Subject: RE: Tech: How do you register song copyright?
You may have to prove possession of the work before anyone else can do so. That is where the letter trick comes into play. Send yourself a registered sealed letter with the work enclosed. This will be dated and recorded. Never open it or break the seal. If at some point in time your copyright is challenged the other party will have to prove possession of the work on an earlier date. The letter should only be opened at that time by an officer of the court.
There are several other threads here on this subject.
