CD Baby Partners with Cosynd to Streamline Copyright Registration

Major digital distributor CD Baby has announced a partnership with legal services platform Cosynd, to help creators get their works copyrighted. The deal will give CD Baby users free access for one month to Cosynd’s Essential and Premium tiers of service to document ownership of their content. Members can then create unlimited copyright split sheets, full copyright ownership agreements, and work-for-hire agreements to enable registration. Enabling simple and quick creation of agreements is also expected to help ensure authorised exploitation and proper royalty distribution. Both companies issued statements expressing how the deal will help artists monetise their content and avoid disputes.
