question from a guy named Prince I killed and he emailed me and he was asking what he should do about his publishing administration situation and that dawned on me as a perfect question to answer on this channel so let's talk about publishing administration but before I do that if you're new to this channel and this is the first time seeing one of my videos I'm wordplay t-jay and I help musicians monetize their music catalog so while you're watching if you like this video go ahead and hit the thumbs up and also subscribe to this channel so you can see new videos that I post up on a regular basis alright so back to the topic at hand publishing administration so what is publishing administration so publishing administration is a system designed to collect all the publishing royalties for musician that's both halves of publishing whether it be writing in composition or just the publishing account itself most musicians only have a writers account they only have the side where they collect on the music itself or the lyrics that are written so that means that most musicians are missing half of their royalties and that's called publishing owning a publishing company would forming rice organization is expensive it can be up to a hundred and fifty dollars with BMI or $50.00 with a scab what publishing administration companies do is they go and register as publishers with all the societies across the world that includes PR o–'s and mechanical rights organizations these publishing administrators can collect the half that's missing from most artists accounts and then on top of that they can collect international performances a little faster that's because they already have accounts in other countries behind the scenes they do all this work for the artist and collect their international royalties and local national royalties they also collect mechanical royalties and for that they charge a small fee most of the time that fee is about 15% so in a nutshell that's what publishing Administration does they take all of the information that you give them they sent it out to societies around the world and collect on your behalf at a faster pace here's the thing most artists don't need publishing administration especially if you're willing to do the work yourself that means you register each one of your songs which are PR o that you signed up with and you go out and have a mechanical licensing organization like Harry Fox agency or music reports and send your catalog to them you also don't need publishing administration if you're willing to have your own publishing account with a PR oh and with having your own account that means you have to wait just a little bit longer for international performances to come back to you now here's the point to this whole video when do you need them reason number one is when you make a lot of music and you have a big catalogue if you're making music every week or every month or you release an album every year that means that your catalog is gonna grow and grow and grow and you don't want to have to do all that work in order to register each one of the songs you want to register at one time with your published an administrator and then let them do the rest of the work reason number two is if you have a lot of artists that you work with if you work with a catalogue of different artists or producers or anybody that is outside of yourself that means that you may want to facilitate this publishing with the publishing administrator and have them help you collect and register all these songs then eventually if your company grows big enough and you can hire some employees you don't need publishing administration anymore the third reason is to collect mechanical royalties to collect mechanical royalties you have to be signed up with one or many of the other agencies that do that so Harry Fox agency in the United States and music reports is another one if you're not signed up with these people directly that means you may be missing some of your royalties publishing administrators go ahead and sign you up with these agencies so you can collect your mechanical royalties the last reason is because sometimes you gotta collect content ID and publishing administrators collect Content ID for you that means when somebody puts your work up on YouTube you will get that money that is received for them monetizing your song and they won't companies like song trust publishing administration help you do this so that's it if you enjoyed this video please subscribe to this channel hit
