What is music publishing?

Publishers make sure songwriters get paid when their music is used commercially.

Some things to keep in mind with our definition:

  • "songwriters" are those who have contributed to a song’s underlying composition.
  • "getting paid" refers to royalties (performance and mechanical).
  • "commercially" refers to any time your music is used / sold by another business or artist.
