I am a writer/rapper/producer/engineer/studio oowner. I have numerous songz I have done and sold with no contracts at all. In the last few months things have happened that were "eye openers". I am no longer releasing recordings,beats, any production without a contract. Lets get a little Database going in this Forum. Everybody add a question and answer. Touch on other peoples questions and answers and add a new question on something they are unsure about. 1. How Do I copyright My Music? I am now on the U.S. Copyright web page, they answer it all. 2. I am a International musician/artist, will I be covered? ???? 3. I want to be able to collect rolayties, how can I set up my loyalty system so I can receive royalties? ???? 4. I want to put artists on my mixtapes (local artists recording on Industry beats) I want to get a contract that I can not copyright, (because I am infinging already) but hold their vocals to the cd. Because I've had a mixtape pretty much finished and a artist came and said "take all my vocals off the cd." What can I do? ????? 5. If I copyright my song...and it is mixed by me (not matsered)...then I get my joints mix and mastered, does the copyright still stand? ?? 6. I need contracts of all sorts. Is there a place I can get good ones for free? ??? Thankx, I think this will be a nice place, where everybody can come to, wont have to make a pile of new topics on previously answered questions.
