Sorry, but this is incorrect. Since 1998 any piece of music that has been
published (this is a very loose term which includes putting it on a CD and
handing it to a friend) is automatically copyrighted. You may register this
copyright with the US Copyright Office but this is not required. If you do wish
to register the copyright all you need is a cassette tape and a copy of the
lyrics (if any).
