The Mechanics of Copyright
|I'm not sure where to post this so I'll try here first.
Musicians have asked about Copyright so I went on a search and found some info that some around here might find usefule.
The actual notice:
© - the copyright symbol. Alternately, you may use the word spelled out: Copyright
year - The year the work was first published
name - The copyright holder's name
There is no space between the © symbol and the year.
Good information regarding copyright in the USA:
For sound recordings, the ® symbol is used.
Even though musical works and sound recordings are separate works under
copyright law, you may be able to register them together on a single application
with a single filing fee if the copyright owner of the sound recording and
musical work are the same. For more information on registering your songs,
see Copyright Registration of Musical Compositions and Sound Recordings
(Circular 56A) on our website at copyright.gov/circs/circ56a.pdf.
Copyright Registration of Musical Compositions and Sound Recordings
For copyright purposes, there is a difference between MUSICAL COMPOSITIONS and SOUND RECORDINGS.
A Musical Composition consists of music, including any accompanying words, and is normally registered as a work of performing arts. The author of a musical composition is generally the composer and the lyricist, if any. A musical composition may be in the form of a notated copy (for example, sheet music) or in the form of a phonorecord (for example, cassette tape, LP, or CD).
A Sound Recording results from the fixation of a series of musical, spoken, or other sounds. The author of a sound recording is the performer(s) whose performance is fixed, or the record producer who processes the sounds and fixes them in the final recording, or both.
Copyright in a sound recording is not the same as, or a substitute for, copyright in the underlying musical composition.
Registration of a Musical Composition and a Sound Recording with a Single Application
Although they are separate works, a musical composition and a sound recording may be registered together on a single application if ownership of the copyrights in both is exactly the same. To register a single claim in both works, complete Form SR. Give information about the author(s) of both the musical composition and the sound recording.
