The Musical Copyrights Society of Macedonia, ZAMP, protects the rights of composers, lyricists, arrangers and other music rights holders of any and all genres within the Republic of Macedonia. ZAMP is a full member of the International Confederation of Authors and Composers (CISAC) and BIEM-the international organization representing mechanical rights societies.Ę
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.
