Once your recording has been completed, what is the next step? Although everything is in the right place and all of the right mixes are together, there are other things that still need to be placed in the correct areas before you can finish your CD completely. Knowing what needs to be done after you have finished the recording will help you be able to move forward in the right direction so that your CD can become successful.
One of the first things that you need to do once your CD is completed is to send a copy to the copyright office. That will help to prevent other individuals from stealing your music. You will also need to maintain a track record of everything you have done. You will usually need to fill a copyright sheet out for the office in addition to paying a copyright fee and sending a copy of the CD. The copyright lasts for a certain time period before your copy will need to be re-registered.
