The Copyright Handbook
The Copyright Handbook covers virtually every area of the immense US copyright law as it pertains to the written word. While it is not specifically music oriented, copyright law for sheet music is the same as for books. At PD Info we try to provide accurate legal information about the public domain, but the public domain is all about finding where NO copyright protection exists. Even if you are using PD materials in your project, you need to protect YOUR creative efforts by copyright law.
This book provides step-by-step instructions and all the forms you need to register your copyright, protect against infringement, profit from your work, and protect your creative efforts. 23 legal forms are included, both as tear-outs and on CD-ROM. Fifteen chapters tell you all about:

and more. If you are publishing your creative works in any form, you need
this book on your desk.
