your Music Published
find the music publishing company that's right for you, read the music magazine
that is directed at your style of music. Music publishers are specialized and
so are their connections. Make certain that company is looking for material in
your genre. A music publisher's job is to explore absolutely every avenue to create
revenue from songs. Beyond placing material on CD's, and as TV themes, there are
opportunities to get your songs in TV movies and sit-coms, in commercials, on
movie soundtracks, and create additional income streams through foreign rights,
too. A good music publisher will have strong contacts in all venues, and be able
to make your song into a non-stop money-making machine.
Music Publishing Contract
The main terms:-
The amount of songs/compositions the writer is expected to deliver during a specific
period and that the writer is signed exclusively to the publisher. This is usually
tied to a specific product i.e., an album of X songs written by the composer and/or
An Initial Period - usually 1 year with options to extend if the songs have not
been delivered, recorded or released, depending on the wording of the contract.
Exclusive Extensions and Options - which will include further minimum commitments
and time periods. If signing to the publishing arm of a record company these terms
may reflect those in the deal and both may co-terminate at the same time.
The territories and period during which the Publisher may control and exploit
the songs delivered in the agreement. 10 - 15 years or shorter for successful
writers is pretty standard, the shorter the better as at the end of term the songs
are returned to the writer who can then choose to exploit the songs themselves
or assign them to a new publisher.
A retention period for songs delivered to the publisher and not exploited during
a reasonable period of time should be included which then allows these particular
works copyrights to be returned to the writer.
Territories is the term for the right to publish in various countries. Assuming
negotiation is possible the writer may wish to sign agreements with other publishers
or set up their own publishing operation in certain countries.
Royalties to be paid to the writer and the basis that these are calculated. This
can be either a percentage of 'gross' or 'net' receipts. If the publisher will
only agree to pay on the 'net' receipts received in the UK it is usually possible
to negotiate a percentage of the gross retained by sub-publishers will be set
at a reasonable level, otherwise the writer who shares the income will not receive
Percentage of Royalties - for most writers this ranges between 60% and 80% of
gross income which also applies to the publishers share of performance income.
50% of gross performance income is also paid direct from PRS if the songwriting
performer is a member. These figures are reduced in the case of 'cover' versions
(songs not recorded by the writer as an artist), although there are exceptions
- this is an income paid to the writer, sometimes in installments, in advance
of receiving royalties on songs written. These reflect delivery and release of
a product similar to a record deal although there are other alternatives, i.e.,
installments linked to signing a publishing deal and/or record deal. The publishers
advance is repaid only when royalties are received from exploitation of the product,
if it doesn't sell the writer will often be expected to repay the advance at the
termination of contract depending on the terms of agreement.
The definition of an acceptable record deal should make provision for signing
with alternative companies other than the five majors.
The waiving of moral rights and full assignment of the copyright in the songs
subject to the agreement by the writer to the publisher. Clauses should be included
to prevent usage of work which has been detrimentally and materially changed,
i.e., the addition of parodic, lewd or derogatory words to the original lyrics.
Publishers Obligations - Vague wording to the effect that the publisher will use
reasonable endeavors to exploit the songs delivered by the writer are pretty standard
as most publishers like to keep their contractual obligations to a minimum! Occasionally
a publisher will agree to provide home studio equipment, demo facilities, tour
support or large equipment costs but any expenses like these are expected to be
recoupable. a)Registration of works to worldwide collecting societies to ensure
collection of income should be undertaken by the publisher on behalf of the writer.
