They will handle the copyright themselves and sign a Standard writers contract. Then should any work be recorded or performed the Revenue is divided with the writer. The copyright Laws and mechanical aspects of the publishing business Are too complicated for the average writer he says and it s better to sign with a publisher. A list of publishers can be obtained by writing either broadcast music inc., Nashville tenn., or american society of composers and publishers in new York or Nashville. Wilson says the Way it works is that should a publisher choose to keep the material he obtains copyrights then pitches the material to an artist or several artists the individual artists then record the material with the company they Are signed with. Then if performances or record sales result and income is1 derived the publisher is paid through one of the licensing firms such As asap or Ami. This then is split with the writer. Oil in a barrel q.
