: : : I would like to know how to go about copywrighting my lyrics, band name, music, demos,what the cost is!.
If it were just a question of cost, you might go to a cheap lawyer, but would he know about copyright and trademark law. There is economy and false economy.
If you can't afford it you may not be able to protect what you have. It does not come to astonomical numbers. You have to pay an Official filing fee of $325 to the PTO for a trademark application, but more important is knowing that is done right.
