Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if publishing administration is right for me?

  • Have your songs been downloaded or streamed internationally?
  • Have your songs been used in videos on YouTube?
  • Are you spending more time on the administrative aspects of songwriting vs. the creative process?
  • Do you want to get your song featured in film, TV, video games, and more?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may want a music publisher to work on your behalf.

I already use a PRO. Why would I need a publishing administrator?

Performing rights organizations like ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC collect your performance royalties only, and we work with them to collect these royalties on your behalf. In addition, TuneCore is also able to collect 13 different types of royalties for you, some of which are nearly impossible to collect without a publishing administrator.

Before TuneCore Publishing I was only using ASCAP. They have been really good for my music but I didn't realize how many more royalties you can collect with a Publishing Administrator in addition to ASCAP.

TuneCore has always been my solution for digital distribution of my music. And now as my publishing admin team, they've helped me get three song syncs. These syncs have provided me money to live and breathe and finish my album.
