Maybe you’re wondering how to copyright your music, or what’s going to happen to it once you put it online. Will someone else claim your work as their own? How can a music copyright help protect your rights to your intellectual property?
Ensure that you’ve protected your rights to your music by filing for copyright protection with Click and Copyright. Click and Copyright makes copyrighting music easy. Complete our simple process, and in just a few clicks you’ll know that you’ve protected your rights as a musician. We can even have your songs off to the US Copyright Office in under 24 hours!
Regardless of what you’ve written, we can help copyright it for you. Click and Copyright can copyright songs, lyrics, sheet music and even full albums of recorded music. Best of all, it only takes a few minutes. Click and Copyright accepts several different file types to make it easy to copyright your music.
Sharing a copyright with the whole band
Worried about making sure everyone in your group gets credit for your work? No problem. Our process makes it easy for each band member to share in the copyright protection for a song or an entire album. If you've all worked together creating your music, you deserve to share in the copyright protection for your music too.
Do I have to copyright the recording and the composition separately?
No, you don’t. Registering a copyright for the recording includes copyright protection for the underlying composition. Similarly, if you register a copyright for the composition alone, nobody has the right to record that music without your permission. In either event, filing the copyright protects you and your music.
Do I have to pay for each song copyright individually?
Absolutely not! You can file as large a body of work as you’d like, as long as the same person or persons will receive the copyright. If your band worked together to record an album, you can copyright the album for the same price as a single song.
Click and Copyright also offers an annual service plan for prolific artists who want to be able to lock in low prices for copyrighting their music throughout the course of the year. With this plan, you can secure copyright protection as soon as the next song is ready, without having to worry about waiting for the rest of the album to get finished. This is a great option for songwriters and bands who want to protect their rights to their work as they finish it, allowing them the flexibility to publish their songs online quickly and without worry.
Can’t I just get a Creative Commons license?
A Creative Commons license does not provide the same kind of protection as a copyright. Copyrights secure your rights. Creative Commons licenses assign the rights to your work to others. If you’re interested, we have additional information on the benefits of copyrights vs. Creative Commons licenses.
