Music Publishing: A Songwriter's Guide
Randy Poe takes the mystery out of music publishing, explaining what it's all about and what it means to you as a songwriter. You'll learn how songwriters and music publishers earn performance royalties, mechanical royalties, synchronization royalties and print royalties in the United States and abroad. And you'll learn all your publishing options - from a single song contract, to a full-time position as a staff writer, to starting your own publishing company. New in this totally updated edition, Poe describes changes in copyright law; discusses how "new media" such as CD-ROM, the Internet and sampling are impacting your rights and income as a songwriter; and includes an expanded section on these rights.
