Can I register an arrangement of a copyrighted song I did not write?

FAQ / Can I register an arrangement of a copyrighted song I did not write?

No, you cannot. You can only register your unique arrangements of public domain songs. That said, it can be registered if there is permission from the original copyright owner(s) of the published song. If a copyright owner has given permission to you to arrange their work, they must agree on splits for your arrangement.
