MID Music - Don’t Forget to Copyright

This section covers topics such as songwriting, composition, music production, and the creative process, as well as what is currently happening in the music scene, medical research, etc.

It is important to recognize that the statements in this section are solely my opinions and should not be taken as fact. It is important to do your own research and make decisions based on facts rather than opinion. It is also important to remember that opinions can change over time and should not be taken as concrete.


Copyrighting your music is an important step in protecting your intellectual property. As a composer, you have the right to control how your music is used, and copyrighting it is the best way to make sure your rights are protected.

When you create a musical composition, it is automatically protected by copyright laws. However, if you want to make sure that your work is fully protected, you should register your copyright with the United States Copyright Office or in your country where you reside.

When you copyright your music, you are creating a public record that confirms you are the author of the work. This is important for a number of reasons, including:

It gives you the exclusive right to reproduce and distribute copies of your music.  It gives you the right to create derivative works of your music.  It gives you the right to publicly perform your music.  It gives you the right to receive compensation for the use of your music.

The Music Modernization Act (MMA) is a law passed by Congress in 2018 that updates copyright law for the digital age. It makes it easier for digital music streaming services, such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora, to pay songwriters and music publishers for the songs they play. The MMA also created a new collective-licensing entity called the Mechanical Licensing Collective, which handles the licensing of musical compositions. Additionally, the MMA sets up a new federal rate court that will help to ensure that songwriters and music publishers are compensated fairly for their work. Finally, the MMA provides an easier way for artists to identify and receive royalties for their songs.

By taking the time to copyright your music, you can ensure that your music is properly protected and that you receive the compensation you deserve for your hard work. Published or Unpublished, don’t forget to copyright your MID music!
