: : what are the procedures to copywrite my music recordings and the name of my act. also are there any fees? and what is publishing all about. another question would be, how long does this whole process take?
The name of an act is a service mark. It can be registered or reserved. Trade marks take about a year and a half on average. There may be prosecution.
Don't mess with trademarks or service marks until you are sure you are not in trouble.
