A music publisher ensures that songwriters and their composition are used for commercial things such as on TV shows and adverts. They do this through a publishing contract which is normally different than the recording contract that an artist may have signed. The songwriter will assign the copyright of their compositions to the publishing company and in return the company then licenses the composition, helps monitor where they are used and collect and distribute royalties accordingly.


PRS for music limited is the UK’s largest collection society, bringing together two collection societies.
