Music Publishing Administration

Digital Music Publishing Administration

Most Musicians only make money from tickets sales when they tour. However, If your music is being distributed, performed worldwide, and you don’t have a publishing deal, your royalties are sitting in collection societies around the world waiting to be claimed by you.

Collecting these royalties by yourself will require direct relationships with each society in each territory. Doing this takes time, paperwork, and a lot of upfront fees. Worst of all, if you don’t register in time to collect your royalties, the collection societies will retain the royalties and you will miss out on additional revenue. Verse One Publishing will help you collect your royalties and send them to you.




The publisher is the person or company responsible for ensuring copyright holders receive payment for the use of their music. For example, a music publisher will obtain the copyright from the songwriter in exchange for royalty privileges. They also issue licenses for the use of music they represent as well as collect licensing fees. These fees get split between the publisher and the songwriter.

As an Artiste, songwriter, producer, or record label owner you need someone in your corner to help globally register your songs and collect all the royalties your songs are earning. Remember, using a publishing administrator like Verse One Publishing doesn’t replace your collection society.


  • Sheet Music Royalties: fifty percent (50 %) of Net Receipts.
  • Mechanical Royalties: a fifty percent (50 %) of Net Receipts actually received by Publisher from any license issued authorizing the manufacture of the parts of instruments serving to mechanically reproduce the Compositions in the United States.
  • Synchronization Fees: seventy-five per cent (75%) of any and all sums actually received by Publisher from motion picture and television synchronization.
  • Broadcast/Performance Income: fifty percent (50%) of the “publisher’s share” of all performing fees received by the Publisher from the broadcast/public performance of the Compositions.
  • Other Income: fifty percent (50%) of Net Receipts from any other source being directly identifiable as from usage(s) of the Compositions and not otherwise specifically referred to in this Agreement.
  • Foreign Income: fifty percent (50%) of any all Net Receipts, after deduction of foreign taxes, actually received (less any cost of collection) by Publisher in the United States from sales, licenses and other uses of the Compositions in countries outside the United States other than public performance fees which are paid directly to Writer.
