Under Which Name Should I Register My Works?

You must use your legal name.

Music Publishing operates using your full legal name. You can add your artist/performer name afterwards in the 'recording information' section, however, you should not register your works under your artist/performer name. 

If you are already affiliated with a Performing Rights Organization (PRO), make sure to add your name in your Songtrust account exactly as it appears in your current PRO.
