Authored by the former Vice President, Creative at Sony/ATV Music and current A&R executive for Shapiro Bernstein, Music Publishing 101 provides a step-by-step guide to setting up your own publishing company, including administration of copyrights, the role of performance rights organizations, and preparing a functioning accounting system for your catalog.
