Music Publishing Unlocked: Your Money is Waiting for You

3509 3

Rob Filomena, CD Baby’s former Director of Music Publishing, gave a talk at our 2015 DIY Musician Conference called “Publishing Unlocked: Your Money is Waiting for You,” expanding on some of the music publishing concepts that most affect today’s independent artists and songwriters, including:

* What is music publishing?

* Knowing your music publishing rights, and how you can generate revenue by exploiting your copyright

* The difference between performance royalties and mechanical royalties

* What is a performing rights organization?

* Why BMI and ASCAP are NOT enough

* How your publishing royalties get split

* What is music publishing administration, and why do you need it?

* And much more

After Rob’s talk, a lot of artists in attendance asked to get a copy of his PowerPoint presentation. Here are those slides:
