Legal Stuff pre-release

So yesterday I did a bunch of stuff to get ready for some music releases. I signed up with BMI and Songtrust. They both help with the collection of Royalty's in case your songs are making any waves.

I probably don't need them quite yet anyway. Then, I signed up with SoundCloud to upload some music. Soundcloud allegedly is about getting your music heard. I was going to sign up with bandcamp, who is supposedly better at getting your stuff sold, but I don't really have much stuff, so I went with SoundCloud. So then, this afternoon I checked the Copyrights I had worked on a couple of months ago, and there had been some sort of problem. They didn't work. I had called and spoken to a rep who told me precisely what to do, but it was still rejected. I called back, but then remembered it was Saturday. Oh well, I suppose some day soon will be my day to fix the Copyrights and probably delay any music releases for a few weeks. So many moving pieces.
