: My band recently recorded a demo cd that we are planning to sell. but first we need to know that no one can steal our songs and lyrics.
: My question:
: what's the cheapest way to copyright my situation? and how would we go about doing it?
There is a difference between "cheap" and "good professional".
We recommend our Reality Check®. It is designed to help people such as you. The focus is on educating you on what you can do, can't do and what you can do yourself. Even the best ideas can be glossed over by manufacturers, or if disclosed may be used as a jumping off point for legitimate copying.
The charge for the Reality Check® is $250. We give credit against a patent search, trademark search or a copyright application, if it is warranted. If you, “–publicly divulge or use–“ your idea before a first patent application is filed, there is risk of losing international rights. Seeking professional help is not a disclosure.
We will not even recommend a search, when we feel confident that we can get a patent, if the invention looks impracticable. We always look for alternatives, if they seem possible. We answer all questions and don't mind being challenged. We may go over more than one disclosure. We are focused on getting you going in the right direction.
Write up in your words, a disclosure of the idea and send it with a check or money order so that we can start right off. We cannot guarantee that you will make money but we can help you to save time, money and worry.
