    Music Publishing: The Roadmap to Royalties is an invaluable guide to generating and protecting royalties and geared toward emerging songwriters and artists. Music publishing - the business of acquiring copyrights and promoting, protecting, and collecting the royalties for music - generates the largest source of income for songwriters and composers. Taking a practical approach, the authors - one a successful music publisher and attorney, the other a songwriter and music business professor - explain in simple terms the basic concepts of the music publishing industry from a songwriter's point of view. They then break down the sources of income that can be exploited, examine the role of the music publisher, and then examine typical music publishing agreements, pointing out areas that writers need to review carefully. The book provides unique Realworld and Myth-buster sections, offering true, contemporary examples of successes and failures in the world of music publishing.
