What Is Music Publishing?
Music publishing is the business of protecting original compositions (songs) and collecting the income they earn. Music publishers register copyrights, negotiate licensing deals, collect royalties, and report to their clients. In a nutshell, they help songwriters get paid when others use their music.
How Can a Music Publisher Collect Money for Me?
Under Copyright Law, you are granted six exclusive rights whenever you create a work in a tangible medium. That means once you've written down or recorded your music, you legally control how it is distributed and exploited. If you go the extra step of registering your copyright, you can then take legal action against anyone who infringes on your copyright. When you enter into an agreement with a publishing administrator like Easy Song, you are extending a part of that control to us so that we may collect from revenue streams on your behalf. With Easy Song Publishing, we maximize the money coming to you by collecting all types of royalties, all over the world.
