Copyright is an interesting subject. When I was at school (in the middle ages)it was a commonly held belief that you could mail a demo tape of your song to your self and, when it arrived, sealed and post marked, stick it in the bank. This would prove that you had written this song before a certain date. The bank would have a record of the deposit and could show you had not moneyed with the envelope.
I was later informed (convincingly at the time) that this idea simply would not hold up in court, and I can remember why !
Anyone have any helpful hints that will keep my cash away from the copyright lawyers whilst protecting my songs ?
I imagine this is of interest to all unsigned song writers out there and Id love to know if theirs a quick fix !
