Easiest Way to Get Lyrics/ Song Copyrighted? :)


Hi there!

Any recommendations on how to get a song copyrighted BEFORE sending it to the person who will sing it? Thanks for any advice!!!


According to USA Copyright law, any original song that you write automatically becomes copyrighted to you the minute you publish it. You automatically own the copyrights to that song until you choose to give/sell those copyrights to someone else.

If you want to trademark something, you’ll have to purchase those protections from the USA Trademark Office.


This is from the TOS:

So you’d need to say in the gig description that you will retain copyright?
