How can I copyright my podcast, and is this important?

Copy writing your podcast isn’t that important. It is far more important to think about Trademarks when your podcast brand becomes valuable to make sure no one can copy you and gain from your brand.

How much do companies pay for background music that accompany commercials or viral videos?

For a company to properly license a song they would need to get the sync license from the music publisher/writer of the song, pay a fee, and then obtain a license from the record company/owner of the sound recording itself.

This is exactly why Synchedin was created.

It solves the complexities of sync licensing and makes the process as easy as obtaining a Spotify subscription.

  • Unlimited commercial projects
  • Unlimited downloads
  • 1000s of known artists
  • Copyright control so no issues!

Should I Copyright my music before putting it on YouTube?

It’s not required.

Copyright for music is technically given automatically when you create the track. You don’t have to register it with any organisation across the world to “get the copyright”.

Thus, after creating a track I would look to release the track on YouTube, Soundcloud and into all music streaming services (which you can do for Free via RouteNote).

YouTube have been frequently changing the rules for MCN’s which is leaving a lot of channels up against it.
