Subject: RE: Copyright Question
Copyright laws vary in each country. In general, your friend is wrong. You have to pay performance or copy rights on any song you record.

You own the copyright for you song. The easiest thing to do is probably just to set it using a music printing program & include a copyright notice.

The U.S. Copyright Office is a good place to start for more information.
