I should have copyrighted that song sooner.
Actually you already did have it copyrighted. In both the US and Canada you become the owner of the copyright of an original work that you've created automatically.

    You are 100% correct mothra. There is a ruling in the US courts that says the only legally permissable evidence is a proof of authorship from the library of congress. That is why the old "mail yourself a copy and keep it unopened" does not work. They decided against that method.

    Also, I don't have the time or money to go up against a corporation. I don't know where my witnesses are at this point and I don't even think that they used more than four or five bars from it.

    Thanks for the link!

    But it is not a registered copyright, only *implied* and you have to prove it is your work, original, and created/published before the alleged infraction or the work.
