MUSC 108: All You Need To Know Chapter 19: Copublishing and Administration Deals Questions when two or more people share the publishing of a song: 1. Who owns a piece of the copyright (some may just have a right to income, with no  ownership) 2. Whether there is a sharing of the administration rights (the rights to issue licenses, collect  monies, etc.) 3. How long the deal lasts (life of copyright, etc.) Most common deals: 1. Copublishing agreements couples with songwriter agreements.  Most common  copublishing deal for artists who are also songwriters. 2. Songwriters who are signed to different publishers write a song together.   3. A publisher who is too small to hire a staff enters into an agreement for a larger publisher  to administer their songs. 4. A publisher hires a subpublisher in foreign territories. Copublishing agreement: a deal that shares copyright ownership, regardless of how long the deal  lasts. Administration agreement: a deal for someone to administer a copyright wholly owned by  someone else, even if it lasts for the life of the copyright. Copublishing Deals Net Publisher’s Share Gross income – an administration fee – songwriter royalties – expenses. Administration Fee A percentage of the gross income, usually from 10-20%. Sometimes based on the gross monies after deducting the songwriter’s royalties. In theory, it is designed to reimburse the publisher for its indirect expenses of operation— rent, secretarial help, telephone, utilities, executive salaries, etc. Writer’s Royalties
