MUSIC PUBLISHING

WHAT IS MUSIC PUBLISHING AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Understanding music publishing is essential for any musician navigating the industry. Music publishing encompasses music creation, focusing on the ownership, administration, and exploitation of musical compositions as opposed to record labels who focus on artists and recordings. Music publishing involves various rights, including mechanical, performance, synchronisation, and print rights, all of which play a crucial role in generating income for songwriters and composers.

Music publishers act as intermediaries between creators and users of music, ensuring that compositions are properly licensed and monetized. From collecting royalties to negotiating deals and protecting intellectual property, music publishing requires careful attention and expertise. Exploring the nuances of music publishing is key if you are seeking to maximise your earnings from music and to protect your creative works in an ever-evolving industry.  Find out more through the buttons below!
