Today's Music Publisher
How important a role does the music publisher play in the music industry of today? A crucial one. Music publishers are responsible for actively promoting a songwriter's talents; placing songs with artists for performances; securing synchronization deals for film or TV usages; and collecting worldwide publishing royalties on the songwriter's behalf. A music publisher in essence takes care of a songwriter's music business, allowing the music creator to focus on what he does best: creating. The successful songwriter can receive income through the three main types of royalties: mechanical, performance, and synchronization.
A mechanical royalty is earned for any "phonorecord" (including CDs, tapes, vinyl, and digital downloads) that is manufactured and distributed with a copyrighted song on it. A performance royalty was originally paid when the song was performed live in public; today it also includes when a song has been broadcast on radio, on TV, in a film, or over the Internet. A synchronization royalty is paid when the song is synchronized with visual media, like television programs, commercials, and films.
In most co-publishing deals, the music publisher is traditionally paid 50% of the "publisher's share" of royalty income from mechanical and synchronization royalties. Performance income is typically collected by a performing rights organization (BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC being the principle organizations in the U.S.); a music publisher usually receives 25% of that income.
