Hi all, still fairly new here. I've read the licensing agreements for Wikiloops and I'm still not clear on this question. I recently wrote a country(ish) song and had it copyrighted. It is registered I just haven't got the cert yet. I'd like to share it on wikiloops. There were some folks who liked the vocal I did with hartmut's guitar track and they wanted me to do more. Anyway, no biggee either way I just don't want to violate any rules.

Thanks in advance this is the best internet board I've ever been on, bar none !:) Take it easy Mike

I work for a large, progressive legal firm and will gladly assume the mantle as expert on this particular topic. Don't let the fact that I am an in-house chef, and have no legal qualifications whatsoever, put you off. I spend a lot of time around lawyers, absorbing their knowledge by osmosis and literally feeding it back to them, often in the form of home-made Turkish flatbreads.
If you write a song and publish it in a tangible medium, such as Wikiloops, you automatically own the copyright. On the Loops, there's an option to add the lyrics at the publishing stage. I print my real name along with my user name, just to be on the safe side.
