Thread Name: Tech: How do you register song copyright?
Subject: RE: Tech: How do you register song copyright?
slight thread creep here, but since we have one of Britain's most eminent legal minds on the thread already, I might as well attempt to pick his brains.

would I be correct in thinking that it is perfectly permissible to make a videotape of yourself performing the work of another songwriter (without express permission) and post it up on YouTube, since there is no monetary consideration involved by so doing ?

could the owner of the copyright of the song get huffy and demand the removal of the video ?
