With the ever growing downloading of articles, stories and musical material off the net, not only writers but also hip-hop and rap artists have seen their musical creations ‘jacked’ by other artists and their hip-hop lyrics and beats used without permission by other artists.

Now, in the way writers protect their intellectual property, hip-hop and rap artists (and artists from all genres) can protect the intellectual property of their musical creations.

All you unsigned artists need to look into this and protect your work.

The Writers Copyright Association has announced the release of its sister organization: the Musician's Copyright Association.

The Musician's Copyright Association fills the gap in the market for musicians looking to protect the intellectual property of their musical creations.

Managing director Jonathan Newman said "This is an important step in IP protection. We hope that artists and creators of intellectual property will benefit from the added protection our services have to offer."

The Writers Copyright Association has been at the forefront of IP protection for several years now. They have long been the frontrunner for copyright registration of literary material.

As well as protecting works internationally and providing evidence in case of litigation, the Writers Copyright Association, (WCA), offer many free services including a script marketplace where users can promote their screenplays to members of the film industry.

Check out the Musician's Copyright Association (MCA) at www.mcaglobal.org for music protection.


The Writers Copyright Association (WCA) at www.wcauk.com for writer’s protection.

Don’t let someone else make theirs off your hard work. It is well worth looking into.
