The Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) is a copyright collection society for Kenya. Its primary job is to collect and distribute royalties on behalf of its registered authors, composers, arrangers and publishers. MCSKŐs goal is to build, mobilise, and support the musical fraternity within Kenya, by integrating and enhancing writers and publishers earnings for their works
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.
