: : I just want to know how can i copywrite and how much does it cost to copywrite my band's name and all of the songs i write.
Copyright is one thing, and trademark another. Copyright and trademark registration is another thing.
A UCC copyright cover 100+ countries but must be registered country by country. Trademarks are local, with 6 month treaty priority. Unless there is a local use there may be difficulty. The same marks may exist for differnt owners in different countries. It can get hairy.
