In the music industry, there are important distinctions to make between different terms and services.
"Copyrighting" is a general term that refers to the action of registering your copyright with the United States Copyright Office. In short, this establishes a public record with the government that you are the copyright holder of your creative work. We offer our Copyright Registration services to help you file a Copyright Registration Claim with the Copyright Office and protect your music to its full extent under the law.
"Publishing" can have different meanings in different contexts. The Copyright Office has a very technical definition of what it means to be published, which essentially equates to "being distributed to the public". However at Easy Song we aren't a distributor, instead "publishing" means protecting original compositions (songs) and collecting the income they earn. Music publishers may register copyrights, negotiate licensing deals, collect royalties, and report to their clients. In a nutshell, they help composers get paid when others use their music.
