  • Songwriter Tip:

    Publishers are your promotional vehicles for songs and instrumental themes if you are not retaining and exploiting your own copyrights. In some instances they will nurture and develop singer-songwriter-artistes to help them gain a record deal. They promote and exploit songs and instrumentals that are signed to them under an assignment of rights publishing contract. Publishers also register the copyrights as assigned to their catalogues with the relevant royalty collection organizations in the countries in which they operate. Music publishers take a percentage of the money/royalties that may be earned and these percentages are set out in the terms and conditions of the publishing contract entered into with the songwriter/composer.
