Dear all ,

I'd like to know that do we need to copyright to our songs before sending demo to record labels? Cos I found out at some sites that says we need copyright to own the song.

Thanks and Regards,
Sevenways happy

My understanding is that if you made it you automatically own all of the rights to it. Though I suspect some other people will clarify. TSVI, you're up.

I don't think he will reply, since he told me that he left the forums...

Yes, my understanding is that you automatically own the copyright to your own work unless you openly choose not too, or sign a deal that says parts of the copyright claim is no longer yours (e.g. a contract).

If you mean the old "post the record to yourself and don't open the envelope"-thingie so that no one can claim it's theirs. I wouldn't worry about that though, as I've yet to hear a story in the EDM-biz where that has happened.

Happy demoing!
