I am seeing a 'Pending' message next to one of my uploads, what does this mean?

If you are in the 'Copyright" area of Songbay and see the message 'Pending' displayed next to an upload, it means you have not yet completed our free copyright registration. In which case, click 'Protect now' (to the right hand side of the pending notification) and follow the instructions. It's best to do this on a computer or tablet as you will be required to draw a digital signature.

You are also prompted to use the copyright function at the end of each upload to Songbay- a message will pop up saying 'Would you like to copyright protect this upload?' (to do so, click on the link which will take you to the copyright area and follow the instructions).
You are further reminded of any non-protected uploads (where you have not yet completed the copyright registration of an upload) by a message at the top of your user dashboard in red saying:


You have (X number of upload(s)) requiring registration for our Copyright Protection Service. Please use our FREE Copyright Service Now! >>

 

Following the link will take you to the copyright area of Songbay where you can complete the copyright process.

It is not mandatory to use our copyright protection service, You may use any other copyright registration office if you prefer. However, most copyright offices charge around $35 per registration, our service if free to all our subscribers!
