1. Copyright Your Beats TODAY!: I don't know if you can relate to this story, but I was once in a position where I was kind of scared to release my music. I was a little worried about submitting to that producer opportunity or putting my beats online. And the reason why is because I would didn't really know a whole lot about music copyright . I didn't know the proper way to protect our music legal. Well, if you're anything like I was when I was first getting started and this is gonna be the best thing that you could do is enroll in this course cause I'm gonna show you step by step , how to copyright your beefs professional and legitimate way. Okay, done Other days where you can put your music on a CD and Mellott to yourself, hoping the desk on a covered you in court the proper way. That copyright your beats is to register them on copyright dot gov. Now, obviously, you could do that on your own. That's cool. That's fine. Either way, I'm cool with it, but I just know for me my personal experience. When I was first getting started, it could be a little bit of a daunting task or it could be a little confusing when you're going on the website. So that's why I put together discourse is a step by step, easy to follow process of signing up on account and registering a car literally. By the end of the course, you know how to step by step, copyright your beets. Okay, you'll have copyrighted beats by the end of the course, and you will have confidence that you can start submitting the music to different producers different and ours. Different opportunities, etcetera without worrying if they're gonna take your music and use illegal, because if they do, you'll be covered. So waste no more time searching online on how to copyright your beach. I'm your man for the job produced music for several different TV networks and things of that nature and pop thousands of students all over the world just like you, how to take the beast to the next level and in this course copyright, their visas well, so without further do jump in and I'll see you on the other side piece 2. Welcome: Hey, what's going on? Welcome to the course. I wanted to just thank you. First of all, for again purchasing this this short little tutorial and I wanted to invite you into a time of really dis understanding what copyright is and why we're going to the process off fouling a claim. Do copyright dog off. Okay, so let's just do that before we even get into the material. The step by step process, etcetera. I want to play a good silent foundation for you. Okay, so let's talk about copyright first off. Okay. What is copyright by law, your music is copyrighted the very moment that you put it into a tangible fixed form. Okay. An example of this will be like an MP three away. Foul. Put it on a CD. Okay. The moment you do that, your music is legitimately copyrighted by law. Now, we registered the music with copyright, not go, because you can't fall into a place of proving ownership, right? The music's copyrighting. It's in a tangible form. But how can we be sure that you're the owner? The only way to do that is if you register it with the legitimate organizations such as the government and give them a copy of your music. Okay? And if they could foul that right the day in the time and all that when you submitted the music, then it will prove that Hey, this person is the original owner of this music because this claim was found on this date and this occurrence happened on this later date, you know? So is this one of those things that helps cross your teas? And Dr Eyes is a term we like to use okay. Or is one of those things that helps you really make sure you legitimize your business? OK, so make sure, man, you go ahead and copyright your bees before you release him. The course is going to show you step by step. How to do that without further do, though I want to go ahead and invite you to Let's just jump into this course one thing, though. Okay, Before we get started, One thing please just go ahead. And this is a not a course. Where you going? Raj It all the way through and didn't go back and do it now. This is a course of step by step tutorial where I want you to be. While I'm going over it, I want you to be doing it. Okay? So before we get started, I want you to be just being that mindset of Look, I'm copyright in this many beats now, okay? If you don't have 20 beats that you want to copyright, at least try to get 10 beats together that you want a copyright. So before you go anywhere, do anything else I don't even want. You go into the next lecture without getting your beach ready. Okay. Find the 10 or 20 beats that you want to copy, right? This is your first thing. The first step, the first assignment. If you want to call it that right, go get the beats. You are. You should have Mr of, you know, since your producer. But if you don't already have him, go get the beats. Get the names of the beast, get him all around, You know, all together in a folder, MP three form format, because you're gonna need those to submit. Okay, again, I'm all about action, you know, saying I want to explain what copyright is explained. How you know why we use the Web site. But I also want to put out to you that this is about actually copyrighting your bees, right? So go ahead to get those beefs and I'll see you in the next lecture, right? Peace? 3. Getting Your Beats Ready For Copyright: All right. So what's going on in this lecture? What I wanted to do is touch a little bit on how to prep your beats. This is not necessary for me to go over this, but it is necessary. And I'm gonna tell you why. I mean, what's the point of copyright in your beats and everything? If you're unorganized? Because after you copyright your beach more than likely, What you're gonna want to do is put your beats online, put him on your beach store, market him on soundcloud, Facebook, all that type of stuff, right? So it's a good thing to go ahead and get your music already organized before you start doing all that. All right? The first thing here is you obviously want to put it into some type of a photo. So you have your beats right here with you. Want to create some folders with your beat names? So, for instance, I have this beat right here named Sexy. Alright. I created a photo with the beat name Sexy and in inside the photo. I have several different types of tracks. I haven't MP three, I have a wave and I have the track outs. And what I've done with the track outs is I've compressed them into a zipped photo. Okay? And what that's gonna do is allowed to be easy for you to upload this to, like, say, a beach stars or air bit dot com, where you can promote your meets and sell them online. Okay, My naming system is very simple. I put the name of the beat first a dash and I put the BPM a dash and a bit Then I put produced by my producer name or my producer company name, which is you kind of beats. So this is what I suggest you do as well. Of course you want to make sure the beats are mixed on this particular these groups of beats. I had these beats mixed by another producer. It just actually cuts down time for me. You know, I don't have to worry about the makes. I don't worry about sitting here and trying to make everything right. Send it off. Get it ready. I'm saying so. You want to make sure you beat your mixed. I want to make sure it is. Your beats are organized into folders and you want to make sure the name properly with the BPM in the name of the beat and who was produced by Okay, um, you want to also export your fouls into Ah, wave fouls. Okay. And then properly name him here. Say, if you're using a program like, say, logic protein. Okay, Um, what you want to do? I was going to create a new track, a new project real quick. What you're gonna want to do is go over here to foul and export as audio fouls. Okay, All tracks of audio fouls. Okay. There's nothing to bounce in this, obviously, because this is this a basic tutorial on what you need to do. Not necessary how to do it. You're gonna have different programs, but based on what you want to do is export to track since the audio fouls and then put him in cities folders. Then when it comes to actually cooperating your music or uploading it to the US copyright dot gov site, you know where everything is that you know? Okay, I have my beats here. I know which beat name it is. I can come over here and give them the MP threes and or the way fouls. Another thing that I do is on the MP three. I go in and manually tag beats. Okay, so I have a tag, you know, the very beginning. And then all throughout the beat. And then on the way found the with the found it out, sell to an artist. I just have the tag at the very beginning. OK, so these are just some pointers. Some tips that I wanted to give to you are before we jump into how to register your music with us copyright dot gov. So go ahead and do that and I'll see you the next lecture piece. 4. Frequently Asked Questions: now, before we actually get into the process of filing a claim or registering a claim, I wanted to address some frequently asked questions. OK, the first question deals with Can you use copyright dog of internationally? So they want to know if copyright dot gov will work all over the world. And to answer your question. Absolutely copyright Doug, that Gove gives you options to select your country as faras your ah, place where you were born, or your citizenship, and also for your Domine cells So you'll see in the course you could actually select your country and put your information down anywhere in the United States or anywhere in the world. So don't worry. If you were in a different country, this will still protect your music, even overseas. Second question we wouldn't talk about is, Are there any cases where I wouldn't need to register my music? And to answer that question, you are always going to need to register your music, but it might not be as, um, big of a deal. Say if you're working with someone that you can trust, like, for instance, safe your signed ah deal with a music publisher from licensing music to TV and film. More than likely the music that you're gonna be were you know, sending into this publisher is going to be custom music that they're gonna be requesting or music that you're gonna be remaking based off of a, uh, you know, off of an example that they give you. In that case, you're not gonna want to sit there and copyright each, you know, submission that you submit to this publisher. But later on down the road. You know, if you feel a little finicky about the situation, I would definitely look into copyright that that music, then Ah, But to generally answer the question, you should copyright your music, especially if, like you're putting it online. Those are the main point main times when your top right music when you sit putting your music online or when you're sending out your music to people you don't know, you always want to copyright your music. Dan, you still want to copyright your music. Even if you're sending out to people you knew no. Or you're sitting out to people you know in a situation where is trusted. But you really want to buckle down to it if you're in a situation where you don't know the people. All right, So for the doctor question, we're gonna ask, can I copyright more than one beat at a time? So basically want to know, Is this like, you know, the copyright fee is around $55? Do I have to pay that copyright fee for each individual beat that I make or can I copyright ? You know, a bundle of beats, multiple beats. And so, to answer your question, absolutely. You can copyright more than one beat of the time. And actually, in the course, we're gonna be copyright 20 tracks. You'll be able to see the end result of copyright 20 tracks so you can copyright 20 tracks on my suggested. You get 10 tracks, 10 to 20 tracks ready. The copyright for this course. And the last question I want to cover is, will this course work for me? If I am Cropper writing beats made with another producer, this could also be, you know, another songwriter, any other the collaborator or collaborator. This course is primarily focused towards the upcoming producer that is currently working by themselves. So you've made a bunch of beats. Maybe in your own home studio, your garage or your production room or whatever place that you have your your studio. And now you need a copy writing. This is not a course for people who, you know, you're working with multiple different artists, multiple different, multiple different producers. And now you needed to copyright a song that has multiple people on there. You know, this is not gonna be the core free. This is the course is designed specifically for if you are working so low, Dolo, the beast have not been released yet. Right there on your hard drive. But you want to release them online, Maybe put him on a beat site, maybe start sitting it out too, and then getting your toe on Lee. Author, You know Onley, Creator on the beat. This is who? The courses for people who are doing that. Okay, um, if you are working with other producers, I would recommend if, like if you're in a major situation where you need to copyright to music, say you already worked on the beat and the beat is you know, you worked on the be with another producer and you want to get the other producer, um, you know, get the song copyright it in. The song is about to be released. Or maybe the sun has already been released. You want to have a lawyer? Look over that and do help you with copyright in your music at that point. Okay, So the courses specifically designed for people were trying to copyright your music before it's released before is hitting the market and people Who are they? They are the single and so author of the music. Okay, that answers those males most frequently questions I wanna ask you So, though one last thing before we go to the next lecture get into the next section is to please ask me questions if you have any other questions. This this I'm definitely open to helping you with that are answering those questions. So, without further ado, let's jump into the next lecture. Thanks for watching 5. Creating An Account: in this lecture where we're gonna be covering this. How to create an account with copyright dot gov. Now, if you haven't already, go ahead and pull up your web browser. Go to you. You are a land type in www dot copyright dot gov. Once you do that is gonna pull you to their site. It's gonna look a little bit something like this. What you wanna want to do next is click under register, which should be under the top left hand side of the screen, and it's gonna pull you to the registration portal. From there, you're going to click on log into the Elektronik copyright office registration system. It should be a blue button right under registration portal. Click there. And from here, you're going to see a place where you can log in. This is where we're gonna create account. Okay, um, since you're new to creating an account here, you're gonna go right here where you see, log in and there's gonna be some words there. Some furbish click on the option that says if you are a new user, click here to register, you click here, you put your name email, you creating user. I d you have a user? I d help section here. Password helps section here for passwords and pretty much this is how you created an account. So go ahead and create an account. And I'll see you the next lecture. Thanks for watching. 6. Starting a New Claim: after creating account, the next step is to register a work. You're going to see your screen look a little bit like this after logging in to register work. All you have to do is click right under here, over on the left hand side where says Register, Working red, click under standard application. From there, click on start registration and then you're going to see an option where you can start filling out your claim. We'll be covering all of these different steps right here throughout the course, but for now this. Go ahead and click on started claim and get to this section right here and then once you do , go to the next lecture. 7. Type of Work & Titles: All right, So now that we have our claims started, you're going to come to this page here where we can actually start filling out all the different options. As you can see, in a very top, there is a case number here. If you go right up top, that's where you're going to see your case number and over on the left hand. This is where we're gonna be able to see the different options. Now, I'm going to say to you that this is something that you can definitely do is is very straightforward. But I want to point out a few things, especially when it comes to the type of work and the titles. All right, so we're gonna be copyrighting multiple different beats, not just one. So that's the first thing we're gonna do is need to select the type of work. All right. The right way to do this is to select the work of performing arts. Okay, that's what producer, as you can see, the work of performing arts includes the following and musical work such as a song with or without lyrics. And technically your beats are songs with just do the songs without lyrics, a dramatic work such as a screenplay or script, a pantomime in or a choreographic work you can continue to read on here, but this is the option that you're gonna what? Select. And then you're also wanna go ahead and click the check box right here and then pushed. Continue. Now, the next thing you want to go do is we're gonna go ahead and fill out the title section. Now, this is the title section. You just click on New and from here you're going to see an option where you can select title type and the title of this work. Now, let's start with the title tight. Actually, it would be beneficial for you to go ahead and actually click on this highlighted title type option right here where it says step one and then you can see why we're selecting the different options. And as you can see here, since we're gonna be moat copyrighting multiple different beats, we're going to select the album title here. So the title of work being registered is going to be the first option. And then under that for the track title of a CD. If you record registering the whole entire city. You're gonna select contents titles. I'll show you here in a second, but what you're going to do is go title tight and we're going to slicked on the title of work being registered. This will be the, like, the name of your beat CD. Or let's say the name of the collective works so you can give it a name. You could be your producer name slash title of works. Okay, so I'll put my production company, and I put it collective works, and I put volume one. And as you continue to build out mawr, uh, claims you could say that the name of your production company, your name, your producer name, collective works, Volume two and so on. And someone and so on. Okay, but what we're going to go ahead and do is push safe. And now you can see that your production title works. Name is right here. If you want to edit it, you can just come over here to the pencil. Click that, or if you need to delete it, click there. Okay. Now you would think, OK, I'm done. I put my title of works here, but you still have to put your contents Title sits where? Copyrighting multiple different beats. Okay, so click on new again. And this time, instead of clicking on title tight title of work being registered, what we're gonna do is scroll down to contents title. This is where you're gonna list of names of your beats. You're gonna do this each time, so save your name. The beats is called, you know, bad is maybe the name of one being for safe. And as you can see, you have the different titles of the contents are right here, and you can keep on continuing until you have all your beats there. So we're going to title type contents title and the next name of your beat. So the next name of the beat would say sad. Okay, just examples here, but as you see here, we have a whole process going. So we're gonna go even review this part again. You push new title work being registered, which would be the name of your beat CD or the collective works of the group of tracks injured Looking the copyright after you do that, then you're going to come over here again and select contents titles. And that's where you're gonna put the names of each track. Don't come in here and put each name of the beats under like this. Okay? You have to do each separate. Okay? Once you've done that, will go to the next lecture, Will. Where will be finishing up this claim, seeing the next lecture. 8. Authorship: now that we completed the type of work and the titles. Now it's time to move on with the application and start with the publication and completion . Okay. When I say publication of completion, basically what they're one here is When did you make the beets? Okay, what year did you make the beefs? They're gonna first, I ask you, Has the work been published? The answer is no. Their brand newbies haven't been published. Haven't been released professional yet. So click. No. And then they're gonna want to know on this page. When did you actually make the music? Okay, what was a year of creation? If it's 2016 if Mr does 18. Whenever it is, put that in there. Okay? For me. I mean, being creating these musics in 2018 was continue. And here's where you can put your authors. Now, I want a preference. This If you're working with other producers, you might want to go ahead and get legal representation to help you fill out your claim. But since this course is geared towards just the single producer copyright in their beats, then what you do is put your information here by pushing new. Um, you're gonna want to go ahead and put your name here. I don't recommend putting your organization. You can do that. And again, if you put in your organization, I would definitely recommend having a lawyer fill out your your claim. But for our purposes, put your name first and last. Okay? And then this is where you're gonna pull it. Click your citizenship and domicile. Okay? Citizenship is this country that you are from or have citizenship at for me? I'm with the United States. But as you can see, we're covering any country into you, the whole world, and then you can select your domicile is well, if you have questions about citizenship and domicile, they haven't option right over here, toe to the right of each option that says help click on that and I'll give you a little bit more information, but we're going to save. And in the next section you're going to see is what you actually contributed to are actually created, which is gonna be music. Okay, so, basically, dis click on this first option. Don't click lyrics, other text or musical arrangements, Just the music. Okay. Click safe and Now we have you properly listed as an author. Click continue. The next thing, we're gonna go over his claim Ing's now, Although you're the author of the claim, you can also a sign yourself or selling the rights to the claim to somebody else. So this is where you're gonna be. Safety net up. In our case, you're going to be also the author and the claiming. So I'll put your name in is Well, so let's put your information here. Your address, etcetera. And then again, this is an either or situation. All right, so I'm gonna put my name here, have my address, all of that good stuff and a marvelous save. I wanted to take some time for you to check this out here. As you're doing a claim to make it a whole lot easier, they added this ad me button here. If you click on this ad me button there automatically gonna populate your information in. Okay, so this could be a great way to save time. All right. We're going to take a break here, and then the next couple of lectures will finish out this claim. Thanks so much for watching 9. Finishing Your Claim: now so far recovered how to add a type of work titles, publication, completion authors and the claimants. Now let's knock out this claim. All right, let's finish out this whole process here. Everything else should be pretty much straightforward. All right, we're gonna go ahead and click on, continue to get to limitation of claim. And this is where you would limit your interaction on here. Now, obviously, the section is for if you work with multiple different people on your tracks and for this course, we're not going to be doing that. I would recommend legal representation if you do that. So I would leave this section blank, OK, and are released on the material included or materials excluded. Okay, leave that blank. Click on new, and you're going to get rights and permissions. Okay? This is where people are going to contact you in reference to your claim. So say, for instance, that they need to use your music for something. This is the information you're gonna want to contact information you want to put down here . So again, it's either war thing. Either you as an individual or your company name. Okay? Either one will for such suffice. Just make sure you have your address here. Your name and your contact information again. The rights of permission section is there for If someone wants to contact you specifically to use your music are or use your copyright from here, we're going to go to correspondent, OK? And this is where if the copyright office needs to get in touch with you, for whatever reason, put your information in there as well, and please continue. And like I said, you know, this kind of self explanatory. And, you know, the process gets easier after some of those hurdles there, but pretty much you're gonna put your information in here again. This is for them to mail this. Is it the certificate? Um, So as you can see, these are kind of auto populating here. And if you have a organization name, you could put that as well. Now, um, dispersed. Continue in some cases, like, safe that someone did you claim, you know, someone using your music and you're trying to copyright it real quick. And this is where you would do special handling. And in this case, I would have a lawyer handle this, so I would go ahead and go head to skip this part. Don't even put anything on that. You'll be fine. And in here is where you're going to basically say yes. I am the person. I am the author of the copyright claiming or the owner of exclusive rights of this music is certified right here. And you're gonna just type out your name. Okay? Please continue. And then at this point, we can review the information here. If anything looks wrong on the application, you could just come over here to any of these sections and make adjustments. Okay, So say if you filled out the type of work or the title's wrong, Okay? You misspell something on here. You come over here to edit and change that to save it. Another thing you could do to is once you start the process, if you decide Hey, I need I forgot needed to do something. And I want to come back to this. You can save for later by clicking there. And then you have all your different cases here. Okay. In the next lecture, what we'll be doing will be adding this to cart, uploaded our music pain and basically finished in the process. CNN a selection 10. Paying for Your Claim: now, as you can see, we have already completed everything. We were already reviewed everything. So what we're going to do is scroll up to the top and click on add to cart over here. You're going to be able to see your information. Make sure you can see your case number. Make sure you see that the fees included there. Of course, the $55 fee. And then after that, there just go ahead and scroll up to the top where you see the check out button. Click on that. From here, you can also see two options you can pay by direct deposit or from your account or from your credit card or change the order for this course. We're going to go ahead and do pay by credit card. So click there and then pretty much just gonna click on OK, is asking you. Do you want to proceed? Go ahead and push. Okay. And push. Okay. Once more. And as you can see on this screen, you can enter your information. Okay? The top option is for if you're putting the check or your account information and the bottom is for your card information. So we're gonna put our card information in here. I was somewhat blurred this out, but we're gonna put this information in here, and then we're going to proceed. Just click this button down here. As you can see, continue with plastic card payment. And here is where we can review everything, make sure everything is right. Also, make sure you pick, um, a good email that you check a lot one wanna go ahead and put that email in the email option here. And also the confirm email addresses. Well, okay, You can also see See it to somebody else if you're working with them. But for the most part, that's what you need to do. After you do that, you're gonna click right here to authorize a charged to your account and the impressed submit payment. And once you see payments successful, you know you've made your payment and everything is good. You should see your information. There's there as well. I blur mine out for the purpose of the course. But thanks for watching. We'll see in the next lecture 11. Upload Your Files: in this lecture. What were we doing? Is covering how to upload of house. As you can see here, we're already have made our payment and payment successful. So what we're gonna want to do is go over to the left here and click on continue on this screen. What you're going to see is the title of your work that you're gonna be copyrighting and you also see your case number and you're going to start seeing a way to upload your fouls. If you look over to the right step one, step two down here, you're going to see some options. If you wanted to mail it in by mail, I wouldn't recommend doing that. It takes longer, but you can do that for the purposes of the course, though we're gonna be showing you how to upload it. So what you're gonna do is go over here to the middle screen and click on the green button . We say select fouls, upload, click there and then you're going to see an option where you can go anywhere you're fouls are OK if you keep it on the desktop like myself or if you're keeping somewhere else hitting you just go there, but click on the foul. You can click on way fouls or MP three. Just keep in mind that the way fouls are bigger. So, like if you have a slower Internet speed, you might want to go with it. MP three. And I'm actually going to suggest that you do go with MP three, not way fouls. You'll see that they upload faster, and it's a lot smoother process. So what? To click your foot, you're fouls. And once you get all your fouls found and uploaded, the next day you're gonna want to do is go ahead and start the upload. Okay, click here to complete your submissive so uploaded all the fouls. And after you upload all the fouls, this is what you see. You'll see that you confirm that your fouls have been deposited and everything is done, and you'll see that everything is uploaded properly. 12. Thank You: what's going all yard.
