CD Baby does not handle copyright registration for our artists, this can only be done directly through the U.S. Copyright Office.
To simplify what can be a complicated process, CD Baby has partnered with Cosynd.
Cosynd offers a simple, affordable copyright and contract service to assist our users in protecting all of their copyrights: music, video, images, and documents.
Registering your work with the U.S. Copyright Office is not required for distribution, however registering your copyright is the best way to protect a copyright, and would make it easier to prove or establish who the copyright owner is should any conflict arise.
You can find out more information about copyright protections and how to register directly with the U.S. Copyright Office at the following address: www.copyright.gov
