What do you mean by "Publisher"?

The publisher is the owner of the copyright to a song not the sound recording. That just means the words and music: melody, harmony, lyrics.
If you or a songwriter/composer you know has never signed away their publishing rights to a publishing deal, then the songwriter IS the publisher.


However, don't get confused with a sheet music publisher or CD manufacturer. "Publisher" in the music world just means "copyright owner of the song itself".
