Looking for someone who has some experience with this. Currently playing in a band that has a few original songs complete. We're getting ready to record them soon. How important is it to have the tracks copyrighted before putting them online / playing them live? Also, if this is something that should be done does anyone know what the process entails or how long it takes? thanks.
OOh, should probably mention, this is in the USA.
We have a copyright sticky in this forum that should help you out.
