1. What does Copyright mean?

Copyright can be defined as the "Right To Copy". The party who possesses the "right to copy" is the copyright owner. Under a system of National Laws and International Copyright Treaties, the copyright owner has the "exclusive right" to perform, display, print, record, or otherwise reproduce the work in any way. Others can obtain permission to use someone's copyrighted work by receiving a License from the copyright owner(s) or their authorized agents. Music Services is an authorized agent for the songs contained in our online database. To learn more about United States copyright law, we recommend visiting the Copyright Office link at www.loc.gov.
