Dear m,
 
Do you have the money to go to court and prove that you are right, even if you are?

Are you able to quote lyrics in a work of fiction?  How would I go about getting copyright permissions (if needed) from people to quote parts of their songs as chapter openers to my book (fiction)?  Which would then be published sold and distributed worldwide

Could someone explain in a little detail what I need to do to get my lyrics copyrighted or registerd or whatever I need to do.  I have many lyrics to other peoples music (friends, professionals, internet, ect) so of course I cant copyright the music and the lyrics together because only the lyrics are mine.  I want to send some of my work in to a lable to try and get a record deal and someone told me that I need to first copyright my stuff, so thats what I'm trying to get done....thanks for the help.

It would cost $30 per song. Go to U.S. Copyright Office website and follow the directions and you can get registration.
