PeruvianĘAssociationĘof Authors and Composers, or APDAYC, Ęgrants global licenses for the use of the musical repertoire for the Peruvian authors and composers they represent. APDAYCŐs mission is to defend the copyrights of the composers of Peru, and that foreign writers also receive a fair royalty for public performance, dissemination and reproduction of their creations. APDAYC belongs to the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC), and complies with the standardized, professional rules at the international level.
Music Publishing is the business of protecting and promoting song copyrights and collecting the royalties that these copyrights generate. Think of a song as intellectual property (it's an original piece of art!), and music publishing as the business that makes sure that songwriters get paid a fair compensation when their intellectual property is used by companies. Those companies could be record labels (mechanical royalties), radio stations, bars, and restaurants (performance royalties), or film studios and advertising agencies (sync license fees), and many more.
