Copyright how to
I am trying to assist a friend who has written a series of dance tunes such as waltzes, jigs and reels. We play them or used to play them pre-pandemic for contra dances in the local DC region.
I would like to create a book of all of the tunes.
I am looking for resources that explain the process by which one copyright's tunes?
Could it be done using Musescore?
For example, if someone writes a tune and uploads it to Musescore, what is the process where by they might copyright the tune? Is there a cost to do so?
Thanks for any guidance.
