Music publishing breakdown

Music publishing is one of the most important — and least understood — aspects of the music industry.

If you’re a songwriter, lyricist, composer, or a member of a group that creates music collaboratively, YOU become the publisher of your music the minute it’s written. As such, you are granted certain exclusive rights regarding that musical composition.

Do you know what your publishing rights are? Do you know which publishing royalties you’re owed for the usage, performance, and duplication of that music? Do you know how to collect those publishing royalties?
