: : 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?
Copyright covers what you create. Registration enables enforcement. With a proper application the certificate can be in hand in about six to nine months.
In a rush and there is infringement then a fsst registration cost about $550 in Goverment fees alone. The certificare comes in days or less than two weeks.
A service mark on an act usually takes about a yer and a half to get the certificate, if there are no technical problem. The official Goverment filing fee is $325. It would be wise to search before filing to save time money and worry.
