: I am looking for information on copywriting my songs but I can only find information relating to the US. Any idea about the pocess in the UK or where I can go to find the information?
: Also how far does a recording of the song go to protecting my ownership?
Dear Ms. Drazin,
My understanding of the UK law is that under the Berne Convention, no formal registration is required in in the UK.
My unresearched belief is that with a Universal Copyright Convention copyright notice that you are protected in the UK.
