Why is Songtrust Listed as My Publisher?

You still own 100% of your copyright.

Songtrust is a publishing administration company. As a publishing administrator, we're authorized to register your works and collect money on your behalf - you still own and control 100% of your copyright.

If you do not have your own publishing entity at your Performing Rights Society (PRO), Songtrust will collect your publisher's share of performance royalties and be listed as your original publisher.

If you do have a publishing entity and you'd like to have it listed in your personal publisher information on song registrations, you can include it when you add a songwriter. If you've forgotten to do this and you've already added your songwriter without publishing information, please submit a Support Form to our team, and make sure to include your publisher name and IPI, so we can manually add it into your account for you.

Once your personal publishing entity is listed on your Songtrust account, it will be listed as your publisher, with Songtrust listed under the contact info. This article gives an example of how this might look in your PRO.
