What are the chances my
song will be stolen?
Pretty slim. we've been in the business for over forty years, and we've never
personally known anybody who really had a song stolen. We've met the occasional
person who had a song that did bear resemblance to another song, but there was
no connection between the two writers that would have permitted the theft.
