Should I copyright my songs?

Hey, I was just wondering about this... Do I need to copyright my music? Should I?

I write a lot and record it, then upload it to my youtube channel. Not to boast, but some of my music is getting pretty professional. I wouldn't want it to be stolen just because I didn't copyright it... Is that at all likely? Can I still prove it's mine without copyrighting it?
If needed, how do I go about copyrighting it? Is there a fee?

Thanks!!

Go to Musician Talk, and from there go to the Bandleading sub forum.

There is a sticky called "Copyright for dummies." It will tell you pretty well everything you need to know to get started.
