The publisher is the one who can help manage and make the most of your musical repertoire, focusing on the right strategies to generate revenues in this field. To make this happen, in-depth knowledge of the field of music publishing and copyright is therefore necessary, involving all collecting societies. Publishing helps to commercially exploit the music of composers and authors, who are paid for their work. Certainly this operation can be handled by the composers themselves, but in order not to take time away from an often difficult and complex job, a designated representative is asked to do so: the publisher.


All musicians and lyricists are considered authors and, when a song is produced, you must immediately protect yourself by protecting the copyright through writing or recording. Intellectual property lasts for seventy years after the death of the last surviving author, but this rule differs from country to country. Copyright ownership allows you to control who can reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, display, and create derivatives of a piece of music, and rights can be fully transferred and assigned to others through the payment of a royalty.


The record label is a commercial brand created by record companies, this name derives from the printed label that was placed in the center of vinyl records. Now the current market is aiming above all at online record labels which are a real revolution in the recording field thanks to the overall reduction in costs. Each label identifies one or more musical genres that are often similar to each other and bring together different artists, songwriters and bands from all over the world: a large and colorful roster. Most of the new generations of artists compose music via DAWs and, in addition to their musical style, offer personalized soundtracks for parties and events: they are music designers.
