I don`t ask this question with some kind of malice to someone who is involved in publishing or administration, but collecting and managing rights worldwide for a songwriter or producer is not a minor task. Also, if you offer co-publication services, you really need to be able to bring songwriters and producers into the internship and skills development rooms and be realistic, most of the companies that offer these services are not able to do so. The benefits of using these platforms are simple, you get the administration of reliable and credible music publishing that has the technical skills to collect all your publications at national and global level. Some of the smaller administrative arms may have big intentions, but they may not have the same collective relationships as the larger players, so you could give exclusive management rights without getting all your copyright. Another thing to remember is that administrative agreements do not provide for creative services and focus exclusively on administrative tasks, such as correct registration. B of your songs in collectible companies around the world in order to collect all your publishing fees. Now you`re stuck with a company that can`t provide the support or advertising tools you need to succeed all because a paycheck is suspended at a sensitive time. Imagine a scenario in which you used your online and offline connections without the help of your co-publication company for shore placements, but you`ll still get half your publisher`s share, no matter what work they do. This is a situation that happens all the time to discrete composers who have an immediate need for capital and have a little money without competent management or a legal team. However, as part of the co-publication agreement, the author receives not only his 50% share in the songwriter`s income, but also a portion of the music publishing house. If we maintain the current example of 100,000 US DOLLARS received by the publisher of CD and tape sales and start from a „50/50 Split“ co-edition arrangement, the author`s total income would be: The duration of the agreement The duration of an agreement simply means the duration of the agreement.

Some people might think that you can conclude a co-pub with a major publishing house (Universal Music Publishing, Sony/ATV Music Publishing Or Universal Music Publishing Group) for a specified number of years, but it`s usually not how it works. As a general rule, the music publisher proposes an initial term of the contract and perhaps three or more „options“ to extend the replay time at the publisher`s sole discretion. On the co-publication side, it is essential to remember the purpose of the agreement. As publishers make a larger investment in you, they have much greater incentive to help you monetize your compositions. As a result, not only do they provide the necessary administrative instruments, but a publishing house should also obtain synchronization opportunities in television, film and advertising and pass on your composition to labels and artists to record and publish by major artists in major record labels (in search of large label placements). A good publishing house should also get you into the studio with other talented producers, songwriters and artists. In addition, there should be a co-pub agreement with an advance that should range from $25,000 to almost $1 million, depending on where you are in your career and what you are giving up.
