The Hungarian Copyright Protection Association (ARTISJUS) is a non-profit collective rights management organization for music and literary copyrights. Its members and its clients include more than 13,000 composers, writers, literary authors and music publishers. Artisjus's mission is to make composers, writers, music publishers, and writers treat their copyrights effectively and transparently, enforce their interests and provide them with information to help their legitimate use. Artisjus takes care of its social and natural environment as a non-profit organization in the music industry. Their goal is to make good music available in the widest sense , and to recognize the role of the creators through recognizing the value of their works. Artisjus is committed to the highest professional level of copyright, along with its author-oriented and sustainable models.
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.
