Musical works are artistic works that may be expressed in any form, be it in scores or in digital sound files, with or without lyrics, in any language.
Note that all genres of music are acceptable, whether known or unknown. What matters is that your creative composition is a copyrighted work that is legally protected
Every type of composition can and should be protected, everything from sound tracks, blues and electronic music, to gospel, jazz, reggae, etc., even ethnic compositions.
Files registered through Works Copyright can be in any format you choose. For example, some of the most common are text files for lyrics or scores, as well as audio and video files.
It is important to highlight that many musical works are developed in a collaborative effort, with one person composing the music and the other writing the lyrics. In this case, each of the works (lyrics and music) should be registered separately so there is no doubt about the authorship of each of the works.
However, if during the creation of the musical work there is a creative collaboration of two or more people in writing the lyrics or the music, a single registration may suffice, citing each of co-authors who participated in the process. Here at Works Copyright you will find tools for this.
Before presenting the compositions to the public, regardless of how limited that presentation may be, it is recommended that you complete the registration process at Works Copyright. That way, your authorship will not be challenged.
