Copyright is free and automatic, starting from the instant your song is fixed in any tangible form, such as notes on paper, sounds on tape, or a digital record in a computer.

You may optionally register your claim of authorship under the laws of a few countries, but the USA only requires registration if you are going to sue in federal court.
