You can do it easily (upload a mp3) online. Cost for one song used to be $35. I'm not sure now.

Copyright is automatic -- you have a copyright as soon as you create something. The fee is for registering your copyright, so that others have notice of it. Registration gives you proof in the event of a dispute.

Registering a copyright allows you to pursue an infringement suit and permits you to recover statutory damages and attorney fees.

If you can afford the lawyer.

If you record several songs, they can be copyrighted all together.



But if there is interest, then you would have to go back and just copyright the one song.



It's just that millions of pieces of music are copyrighted each year , get in line. Sometimes, it literally is, who gets there first.



My lawyer in Oregon, went back and got the European residuals for those who played on "Urban Cowboy" and got them all $17k.   Cool for the little guy.
