: What is the procedure for obtaining copywrite on a poem? Is the procedure the same for a copywrite on a song?
Dear Shirley Grayson,
The proceedure is that the law cover the creation. Registration enables enforcment. There is seldom any reason to register a copyright on a poem or a song unless it is published. If there is a recording of song and it is sold, it is very important to file so that you can get royalties on the use of the music by others.
