Canadian copyright help

• Jan 12, 2024 - 01:09

Ive written an orchestral suite that is finished and I have no idea how to copywrite it so I can upload it. Just wondering if anyone has copywritten a piece in Canada. I assume we are supposed to copywrite our music before uploading?

thank you for the reply. Do you know if I can use a "pen name" for the author of the work, the way that literary authors can. Or if that will void the copyright because it is not me legal name? I was named after my biological father, but I'd like to use the last name of me grandfather , who was a music lover.

This section of the document linked above seems to handle this topic:

If you are the author of the work as well as the owner of the copyright of the work, and you wish to remain anonymous, you may use a pseudonym in place of your name. Note that you must still include a complete mailing address.

If you have any questions or need clarity on the use of a pseudonym, you should seek the services of a legal professional in the area of intellectual property.

anyone know what a registration number is?

It says on the copyright order form to enter the registration number. I have no idea what that is.
