Happy New Year! We’re looking forward to releasing new features, improving the upload process, hosting more virtual events, and connecting with our composers. Our goal is to make My Score the best service for selling your self-published and independent music in 2021.
To make sure you’re ready to sell music through My Score, here are four tips for improving the presence of your works online.
Protect your music copyrights
The new year is a great time to update your works with copyright and trademark statements on the footer of your sheet music.
If you’re concerned about your works appearing in virtual concerts in the digital age, consider registering your music with a performance rights organization (PRO) like ASCAP
PROs are responsible for securing royalties when your music is performed. You can brush up on your copyright knowledge with some light reading from the U.S. Copyright Office at copyright.gov.
To protect your music from the “five-finger discount,” My Score automatically watermarks and downgrades online score previews. Additionally, an unintrusive “Sold To” watermark is applied to the top of all digital ePrint copies purchased, and sheet music downloads are restricted after they are successfully printed.
