Music publishing and CD Baby Pro: an interview with Justin Kalifowitz of SongTrust
Music publishing is arguably the most confusing — and important — aspect of the music business. In episode #121 of the DIY Musician Podcast (that’s right, we’re finally back in the swing of things), CD Baby’s Kevin Breuner talks with Justin Kalifowitz of SongTrust, experts in the world of independent music publishing.
Some of the topics they discuss include:
* What kinds of royalties are you owed as a songwriter?
* Which royalties do performing rights organizations like ASCAP and BMI collect for you? What WON’T they do for you?
* Why is it so hard for independent artists to collect some of the money they’re owed?
* How does music publishing differ from country to country?
* Is CD Baby Pro for me?
In this podcast, Justin answers all these questions and more — plus, they talk about how CD Baby Pro solves many of the publishing-related problems independent artists face today.
