    Maybe somebody knows the answer to this and can save me the price of a phone call to LOC.

    Step One: I apply for and get an SR copyright for an album of songs that I write and record - I work the SR copyright so the one $30 registration covers both the songs and the performance of them. Nice.

    Step Two: later on, I find some people to collaborate with me on a new and different recording of those same songs. I don't have to re-register the copyright of the songs obviously, cuz I've already done that, but what about the new recorded versions of those songs? Can I apply for a new SR copyright, this time copyrighting only the recording of the songs?

    LOL

    You're gonna make me call LOC, aren't you...

    That's okay, I've done it before, and it was useful. That time, I got the answer to my question, but the person I spoke was definitely in 'disclaimer' mode. It's really 'cover your ass' territory, all this copyright registration malarkey, isn't it?
