Music Composers Unite!
Would anyone happen to know if there are websites/companies where you can view and submit songs for advertising, film, & interactive media? (Preferably without an annual fee.)
The only one I've come across so far is Tracks & Fields, but they require you pay an annual fee in order to submit. I am currently poor.
is it possible to copyright notated music? i know you can copyright lyrics, but chord progressions/tunes?
Yes you can (and you should) copyright music - either a basic version (melody + chords, typically symbol, or piano notation), or a full version (the entire score, if it's a symphonic piece for example). Both have their advantages and disadvantages you should consider. I would best recomend checking with your country's copyright organisations for specific standards.
