: I have compiled a songbook of Cuban songs (lyrics only) and am curious about how copyright laws affect the project.
: Some of the songs are "traditional" or in the public domain while others were written by and attributed to particular authors.
: I would like to distribute it free on the web but some people are telling me that someone may take it and publish it themselves for profit.
: Then there is the fact that it is Cuban material, and I wonder if copyright even exists in Cuba?
: I was wondering if I could just copyright the compilation but distribute it for free, to make sure no one tries to profit from it...
