While many musicians new to the business side of the entertainment industry are unaware of the importance of publishing, veteran performers and songwriters know how important it is to hold on to the publishing rights to your songs, which can be an important source of income for years to come; Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and John Fogerty are just three of the many musicians who found themselves in court after signing egregious publishing contracts early in their career in hopes of winning back the rights to their own music. Music Publishing: The Basics is a video primer to this important side of the music business, which explores how publishing works, publishing contracts, copyright laws, what to look for in an entertainment lawyer, how to start your own publishing company, and much more.
