Publishing split

Hello to all,

Is there anyone who can help me understand the publishing division?

TuneCore fails to give me an explanation, I simply ask this:

I have a Song "X", written and produced only by me, I got a agreement with record label, that send me this contract (see attachment).
in point 12. Publishing: the label gives me 50% of the publishing.

Now I ask the confirmation, will this be the percentage that I will have to enter in the music publishing portal (tunecore or CD baby pro or any other)?

thanks
best

If you're serious about your music, please find an attorney that specializes in intellectual property.

And get a book on the issue.

Do it early in your career!

Best of luck!

It's 50% of net meaning you have to subtract the business's expenses and operating costs to calculate the business's earnings before tax. Once you deduct the tax from the amount calculated via creative accounting methods which is cross-collaterized with all costs associated including but not limited to performing, radio promotions, touring expenses, studio booking, production costs and product returns you will end up with the net amount which is split in half. Seems pretty straightforward to me ;-)

Why are you the one uploading to Tunecore if you’ve signed with a label and publishing company?
