My Canada Post money order in US funds was returned by the US copyright office . They are asking for an International Money Order drawn on and cashable by an American Bank. How do I get one that is acceptable to them ? How do other Canadian songwriters on this board pay for their registrations with the U.S. copyright office?

I would think that your local bank should be able to do what you need. Ask them.

Hey - that happened to me the first time too. Just head down to your bank and tell them you need a money order in US funds, and give them the payee name. They'll do it up for you in a couple minutes.
cheers

PS - I think that it would be very helpful if they would put that info on their site or form somewhere

PSS - the Songwriter's Association of Canada has a song depository service you can use if you are a member. You can't copyright collections through, so it can get pricey ($15 admin fee + $5 per song)

You can get a US Draft (MO)at any bank,they can fill in the info or you can do it yourself.Postal MOs are not acceptable.

Thanks everyone. I took everyone's advice and went to the bank yesterday They knew what to send . I mailed the registration yesterday. I have used Canada Post money orders in U.S. funds before to purchase merchandise and enter contests in the U.S. but may as well start using the bank drafts for that as well. Thanks for the replies.
