Protecting Your Content is Now Easier and More Affordable Than Ever Before.

Cosynd and CD Baby, are excited to partner to provide you with affordable, simple copyright services.

Now, you can register a song or an entire album with the U.S. Copyright Office in minutes for as little as $29.99 per application. You can also create FREE customized copyright ownership agreements, split sheets, and work for hire agreements that state what each of your collaborators will own and who has your permission to license your music, or use your name, image and brand.
Best of all, you can protect all of your copyrights - your music, videos, images, and documents - using Cosynd.

Why Should I Use Cosynd?

Cosynd saves you time and money – Register your works with the U.S. Copyright Office and create agreements in minutes for far less than what other services charge.

Cosynd makes copyright ownership easy – Just answer a few questions to create customized split sheets, work for hire agreements, and other copyright ownership agreements with your collaborators that cover all of your copyrights: music (compositions), videos, visual art, and literature.

Cosynd reduces the paperwork you have to manage – Your copyright ownership can be outlined with just one agreement that all of your collaborators can access, e-sign, and store. You can easily add new content to your agreement with just a few clicks at any time.

Why Should I Register My Copyrights?

Registering your works with the U.S. Copyright Office can pay off in big ways—especially when things go wrong. Copyright owners that have registered can:

  • Use their registration as a public record of ownership.
  • File an infringement suit.
  • Collect damages of $150,000 per work plus attorney fees.
  • Use their registration as factual evidence of ownership in a court of law.
  • Record their registration with the U.S. Customs Service for protection against the importation of infringing copies of your work.

Why Should I Have A Copyright Ownership Agreement?

Without a written agreement in place, anyone that you collaborate with has an equal claim of ownership and rights to your content by default under U.S. copyright law, even if you paid them.

When your collaborators aren't sure who has permission to license or sell your music, it can lead to your music being exploited, lost income, disputes, lawsuits, and more. Taking the time to outline copyright ownership now can help you avoid expensive legal and financial issues later. You also may not be able to register with digital services, publishers, rights societies, etc. without deciding copyright ownership beforehand.
