So I would really like to put out my songs, but theres always the risk of some lazy bum ripping my songs off. So does anyone here on UG know how I go about liscencing the rights to my songs?

Master Shake?

"You know how many birthdays there are a year?! There are hundreds.... Literally.... hundreds."ATHF FTW!

And UG has their own Plagiarism (i think that's the word) policy I'm pretty sure and it says the "Strongly enforce it". Your probably safe cause I'm sure they can see what time and date said song is uploaded.

EDIT: Yep found it.

Quote by Riffs & Recording Rules

2.4 What is plagiarism?

Plagiarism is passing off another person/band's song or recording as their own. This is taken VERY seriously on UG, and any member found doing so will be banned IMMEDIATELY. The likelihood of you managing to do so is minimal anyway, with the range of music lovers on this site.

Does this explain it?

Actually from my understanding in the U.S. you can technically pay the $35 dollars for the whole CD. It'd be like one collection of music and anything that is in it is can still be protected. Sort of like if you plagiarize a small part of a paper and use it in yours, same concept.

That is, in the U.S. You'd probably wanna go and talk to a lawyer buddy or something.

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.
