    Wll Mr.HixMix I dont know how long you have been writing songs or if you even do,But Ive had four song
    published in Nashville,One album
    cut in 1979, I think I know what I
    speak of,Ive been through it all
    from a to z so you have your thoughts, I know what I know.You
    can spend the $25.00 per song to copywrite them or save the money
    and do it as I and many outhers have done it.
    Thanks have a good day

    Cool

    Its presently 30.00, and thats for as many songs as you can cram on the tape, CD, or whatever they used to record on "back in the day"....I guess I have a few questions like will a publisher actually publish a song that isnt copyrighted, and what record label would release a record without copyrights, what turnip truck did u fall off, can Coca Cola remove skidmarks from underwear,why does Eddie have skidmarks in the back AND front of his underwear,how do I know this.....enuff questions for now......

    copyrites

    If this message was for me,the first song i had published was in
    1972, it was $25.00 per song I dont know what it is today I sort of got out of it after i cut my
    first album (Gospel) and did the
    tour circuit for a couple of years. A plublisher will secure the copyrights on the song or songs they sign with you.I have never fallen from a turnip truck,
    But I did hit the dirt off the back of a semi trailer a few times The music business is much harder
    today than it was when I first got into it in 1971.I mainly record for others now, I still write,&
    guess I allways will.I'm in the process of up gradeing my studio
    From square one, hope I answered
    all you ask me.
    Talk to you agin sometime
    good luck in all your musical endeavors.

    Cool

    Ok, im still not clear about whether u did or didnt copyright your songs....anywho, since Gibs seems to think you are ok Ill cut u some slack...however, i must let u know that as a former musician, it is very, VERY careless of you to advise people to copyright songs in such a manner...Im not attacking you, just your views on copyrights...

    copyright

    first off I was replying to one persons question,It was as I said
    in those days referred as the poor
    mans way to copyright their songs
    Not something I invented,I first
    found out about the method in a book in Nashville if you would like I will find the subject article and e-mail it t you.
    And yes the songs that were published were copyrighted as well
    as the songs I wrote on my Gospel
    album====R,Coggs

    I just kind of wandered in here...

    ...but if you're all talking about the infamous "poor man's copyright" that consists of mailing yourself an envelope with the song in it to "prove" that you wrote it "way back when", it doesn't stand up in court because they have no way of knowing you didn't simply mail yourself a couple of unsealed envelopes every six months 20 years ago and then put in whatever you wanted later on.

    It sounds great when you first hear it, but that's the problem with it. We covered this here years ago. It should be in the FAQ. Sorry!
