Written by Songtrust:
Without songwriters, there is no music industry. Our business – that we love! – is built on songs. But the rights of songwriters can seem dauntingly complex, even for longtime professionals.
Songtrust is committed to educating everyone from brand-new musicians to music business professionals on songwriter rights and royalties, and we offer equitable, fair, and globally effective music publishing administration to make sure songwriters and their representatives can collect all their royalties, from everywhere around the world their songs are played.
Songtrust launched a new look and an updated website recently, and as part of this relaunch, we rewrote, restructured, and redesigned our Modern Guide to Music Publishing.
This free, downloadable resource covers everything from the very basics of song rights to the nuances of the global publishing administration picture. Built for everyone from beginners to veterans who could use a refresher, the MGMP is an invaluable resource. Get yours today!
