Can anyone please tell me how to claim the copyrights to a song composed by my recently deceased dad. I wrote to BMI and got a clearance form to fill out but lacked the necessary data to complete it. This is the problem: the song has been recorded many times throughout the years by numerous bands, in several countries etc. (more so recently) but my dad dies and forgets to leave me any type of documentation to the effect. He is, nevertheless,interntionally recognized as the author.
