Suegorgeous Performance copyright advice please! (20) RE: Performance copyright advice please! 02 Dec 11


Thanks everyone for your advice and thoughts! :)

OK, an update - I think I've sorted it. Having made contact with the poet's literary agent, they've given me permission to do my/our song at the Xmas gigs and on radio - initially for a fee, but they've now very kindly agreed to drop that (cos I'm poor and none of these are paid performances). Which is totally fab, and I'm very happy. As for the RL Stevenson one, I'll change it to my own tune.

However, this has brought up another question. They've asked me to send a recording of the song (from radio or gig), which I'm very pleased to do. But how do I lable the recording with my own copyright (for the music and arrangement)? is it enough to mark the cd with a statement to that effect, plus in the accompanying letter? or should I register it somewhere?
