    Copyright isn't expensive - it is free.

    As soon as you write your song down it is AUTOMATICALLY copyright to you. You can pay a fee to "register" your copyright at http://www.copyright.gov/ but not doing so does NOT affect the validity of your copyright.

    The so-called "poor mans copyright" of mailing something to yourself has NO legal effect of any type. It's pure myth. here is what the copyright office themselves say about it... http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-general.html...

    You don't need a contract Here is what you do. You write the lyrics to the song on paper then you nsend it to to yourself by registered maill. The post office stamps the date on the envellope which proves legal when this letter was sent. DO NOT OPEN THE LETTER keep the seal on it. |Then is ever your song is questioned whether or not YOUR wrote it. You can provide LEGAL proof that it belongs to you.NO QUESTION Keep your envelkope in a safew place . It is a chep and safe way to protect your authoring rights I have protected many of my writters rights in this way.

    Don't record it until you have the copyright in place. Or rather, don't give it away or sell it until the copyright is in place.

    Get a lawyer that does copyright laws.
