I'm sure this question comes up regularly, but I just joined the list, and haven't seen it discussed.

I'm a musician. I put my music up online under a CC license because the solution to IP issues is to make music freely available for non- commercial use.

My question is, if I register my songs with ASCAP will this confuse the issue? My thinking is that, since ASCAP collects royalties for commercial use, and my CC license is for non-commercial use, that I'm covered.

Any comments?
