What is Publishing?
Publishing is one of the biggest mysteries of the music industry in the region. It’s about something that publishers know very well and something that most of the authors know very little about. This leads to dissatisfied and usually deceived authors.
The publisher is first and foremost copyright administrator, someone who is authorized or has acquired his right by contract, purchase, investment.
Therefore, the author is a 100% copyright owner until this right is transferred to someone. Transfer of rights happens with them mainly signing contracts with publishers with time constraints.
Publishers are there to do the administration of rights, thereby having a share in copyright with:
- Individual or Company that possesses rights
- Individual or Company that has them purchased
- Individual or Company that inherited rights
So, be careful when signing a contract with publisher and also make sure you know what are you doing when transferring your rights to the publishers. For that and everything else, we are here to help and advise you.
And yes, we never take your rights forever!
