Do you need to make changes to songwriter and/or publisher information on a submission you’ve signed up for CD Baby Pro Publishing? If so, please use this request form to submit your request. Not sure what to chose? Keep reading, we'll help! Do you need to make changes just to your distribution? Please check out this article.
If your CD Baby Pro Publishing release has been finalized for distribution, here are the kinds of changes we can make for you:
- Songwriter & Publishing Changes
- Songwriter Splits
- Downgrade from Pro to Standard
- Cancel my CD Baby Pro Administration Service
- Submit Letter of Direction
If your title has NOT been delivered to the partners, click here.
This form should only be used if you must request changes to CD Baby Pro Publishing releases that have been finalized for distribution. The only exceptions to this rule are the “Downgrade from Pro to Standard” and “Submit Letter of Direction” options mentioned below.
Keep in mind, these changes can take time to process, but they will have no impact on the timeline of your digital distribution, or our ability to collect sales revenue on your behalf.
1) Songwriter & Publisher Changes that include:
- Songwriter name change
- Make songwriter collecting or non-collecting
- Publisher Name change
- Add/remove Publisher
These kinds of changes are specific to each individual songwriter. If you need to request changes for more than one songwriter, please submit a separate request for each songwriter.
2) Songwriter Splits
It is essential to have the correct songsplits entered with your PRO and other collection agencies. We understand that you may need to adjust songsplits after the distribution process has taken place. Remember, it’s always good to have a split sheet signed by you and your co-writers!
Check out this DIY Musicians Blog article for more information on split sheets.
This would be the correct form to use to add or remove a songwriter as well, since we would be updating the songsplits in this case.
3) Downgrade from Pro to Standard
You can request a downgrade using this form regardless of whether your submission has been finalized for distribution or not.
4) Cancel my CD Baby Pro Administration Service
Your publishing administration can only be cancelled after your one-year term is up. Please refer to the terms of service "Publishing Addendum" for additional information.
5) Submit Letter of Direction
This option will not result in us making any changes, but if you are having trouble submitting your Letter of Direction we can help!
Make sure you read this Help Center article first before submitting this kind of request.
But I haven't delivered my project to the digital partners
If your submission has not been finalized for distribution, you can simply click the green "Need to make changes" button on the right of your Title Overview instead of us. That will unlock it and allow you to make any necessary changes instead of using this form.
