You see, my band and I have recorded a number of songs on audacity. The trouble though, is that we're scared that someone might steal our songs. Any ideas on what to do?

why would anyone steal your songs?


If you're really worried about it, mail a cd of the songs to yourself. Instant copyright.

In the US songs are copyright protected as soon as they are created - hence i don't think you have much to worry about.

Computer file with date might work - mailing it to yourself will receive a date from the postal service and thus SHOULD (but don't quote me) prove the date of your material. You sound like you know someone who is pissed at you and wants to steal your stuff.

Alright, that sounds cool. Thanks for the help.

And by the way, there is this one kid who's really pissed off with me. So I'm kinda worried about him.

Say someone does steal them, how can I prove that I wrote and recorded it first?
