Selling your Songs...

Recommended Posts


I just wondered if anyone wanted to share their experiences and advice with other board members about selling or renting their songs to others. You know, things to look out for, types of deals, good publishers, receptive pluggers or agents etc...

Hi John,

Unfortunately, not much experience into that. Although I've been writing for others, so far none of my songs have made it to a deal.

The only thing I make sure is that, before anything is going to be public, I register the song with my authors' right organisation (SACEM). Which can be a pain because, normally, they require a "beginning of public performance" to register it.

The advice I can offer is:

If there's something potentially serious involved, copyright at once your material.

Don't sell your publishing rights just for the fun of it. By owning my own publishing rights, I own 100% of royalties (I'm speaking of author's rights, nor performances). With a publishing company involved, it would be 50% only.
