Do I Still Own/Control My Copyrights?

How does copyright work in the US?

As the original creator of your musical work, you automatically own 100% of your copyright, regardless if you decide to register your works with the U.S Copyright office.

Songtrust does not take ownership of your copyrights! Rather, we just administer these works on your behalf. You always maintain 100% ownership of any work you register with Songtrust.
