By TuneCore Music Publishing Administration

I’d like to focus on the sources TuneCore Music Publishing Administration collects from on behalf of you, the songwriter and publisher of your compositions. Your compositions are a separate copyright from the master recording, and in most cases, the royalties from your compositions must be collected independently from any royalties you receive for the distribution of your recordings.

Having a Publishing Administrator allows you to receive all of your royalties as a songwriter and publisher from all applicable sources. While the list below doesn’t include every possible source, we felt it important to provide you with the sources that are most common. Remember, any synchronization licenses (for film, TV and commercial uses) would be additional sources not covered on this list—these are fees that we negotiate and license on your behalf as your Publishing Administrator.

We’ve also put together a list of the territories covered by our Music Publishing Administration service so that you can understand the vast number of countries we are collecting royalties from.

When you look at the lists below, it’s important to keep in mind that both lists will grow as we move forward, and as the landscape of managing your rights as songwriters and publishers continues to evolve.
