FanUnite is not responsible for the copyrighting or protection of the music uploaded to this site. However, we still want to help you protect your work.
Once a song is written down or published (FanUnite and YouTube counts as published), the writer is the official owner of that song.
Registering your music/lyrics with the Library of Congress is optional, but is recommended to protect your ownership of your work.
"The Poor Man's Copyright" takes place when you mail yourself your music and do not open the envelope in order to prove date of creation. However, this is not a guaranteed means of protecting your music, as high tech laser printers can falsify postmarked dates.
FanUnite suggests also submitting your work to any official music organization such as ASCAP, BMI and SESAC that you might be a member of.
Registering your music with the Library of Congress costs $35 online and $45 by paper, but does provide certain benefits:

In order to publically perform a song that has been copyrighted (ie. a cover song), you have a legal obligation to obtain the rights for such a performance. Posting videos online is considered a public performance, as is physically performing a song at a gig.
By agreeing to FanUnite's Terms and Conditions, you are agreeing to be held liable for any copyright infringement of your videos. If it is determined that your video violates copyright laws, FanUnite will be required to remove your video from the website, with or without notifying you first. FanUnite is not responsible for ensuring that your video has the appropriate and necessary licensing, but we want to help you cover all your legal bases.
In order to legally post a cover of a song not in the public domain, you need to obtain a Mechanical License from the owners of that music. Note that the music and lyrics are copyrighted separately from the actual recording of the song, so you need to make sure you have the necessary rights for both. If you are recording a cover of a song and combining it with other music or video, you will need to obtain a Synching License in addition to the Mechanical License.
You can get a Mechanical Licenses here or via other websites:
To obtain a Synch License, FanUnite recommends contacting the publisher directly.
