  • Songwriter Tip:

    If you or your band is at the stage of sending demos out to labels, producers, et al, you don’t need protection, but this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have it. At the very least, always use the ‘poor man’s copyright’ method. Use government registration if you can afford it, as it is still the best. Even though the risk is incredibly minimal, perhaps one of the person’s you’re sending your package out to has changed jobs and has been replaced by someone who is new in the business and is not quite honest. There is also the incredibly small, yet existing, chance that your CD will get mixed up with someone else’s and that they’ll get signed on the strength of your songs and think nothing of making them their own. As I said, although the risk is extremely low, it’s still worth spending a bit on protecting your work.
