    Where are you getting that number from? I'm not aware of any limit on how many tracks you can submit *

    * aside from the practical limitations if you're registering online - but even then, it seems that you're able to submit far more than 20 tracks through a single session: http://www.copyright.gov/eco/faq.html#eCO_2.3

    great info. a friend mentioned doing the poor man's copyright and wondered how it would hold up in court. i guess registering with bmi or ascap is just the best way to go

    In the US, it's not a question of holding up in court. Without copyright registration from the US Copyright Office, you can't even get INTO court.

    And registering with BMI, ASCAP, or any other PRO is entirely different from registering your copyright. You register your copyright in the event you ever need to file a lawsuit. You register with a PRO to collect public performance royalties. Two separate concepts.

    Ya, Copyright.gov is pretty straightforward and quick to use, granted they have an interface that looks and runs as if it is 10 years old, and seems to only be 100% compatible with Internet Explorer. But it is only $35 to file a copyright on an entire collection or series of songs, and you can .zip them up and upload them instantly.
