Modern Music Publishing Demands an Easier Way to Track Songs

Music publishing refers to the money you make when people or businesses use your original, copyrighted music. Today, when your song is streamed, your recorded performance is played in a bar, or a cover of your song is used as background music in a YouTube video, royalties are being earned.

We created Songtrust to help you easily capture publishing revenues across music distribution methods, anywhere in the world. Our team has decades of experience in traditional publishing that we draw on to help you handle complex licensing issues among other exceptional situations.

Creator-Centered and Digitally Driven
