  • Songwriter Tip:

    Songwriters and composers can, of course, elect not use a music publisher as the middle person for the promotion of their songs and instrumental themes to record companies and artists, but someone has to be identified as the publisher/copyright owner of the song especially if it becomes successful. Credits on commercial record/video releases need to be identified even if the rights are solely retained and controlled by the writer. If you have a song which has been taken up by a record company or artiste then it may be advisable for you as the songwriter to retain the publishing rights by forming a publishing company, therefore, retaining 100% of the money.
