Q: I made a song with a free beat that the creator allows anyone to use and someone else who doesnt own it Copyrighted me

They have whole different lyrics just the same beat and they copyrighted my song causing me to unwillingly forfeit all future revenue I may make and I was wondering what I can do about it legally

Mr. Michael O. Stevens
Mr. Michael O. Stevens answered on Feb 8, 2020

Unsure, as your information does not exactly make sense. The person who wrote the beat owns the copyright to that part, you would own the copyright to your lyrics. The other person would own the rights to their lyrics.

If it falls under patent, trademark, or copyright law, you should take the respective action to secure it (prosecute a patent or trademark application or register your copyright). If it does not fall under one of those categories, it may be a trade secret, in which... Read more »

Can other people use it? Or is it property of Paramount/CBS like I expect?
