Music Publishers Worldwide
Music publishing is how songwriters earn the bulk of their income, allowing them to monetize their compositions and earn royalties for their usage on terrestrial radio, satellite and internet radio, TV, in live venues, and more. While the songwriter usually owns their songs, music publishing companies issue licenses for the use of a song, collect royalties, do the accounting, and so on.
