Music publishers work together to create rights database

News: 12th August 2010 by Louise Dodgson under Music Publishing

There has been much confusion for a long time over rights to music over various territories with no concrete system in place to record this vital information. Due to a lack of admin in this area, it has unfortunately quite often led to music makers not being paid for the use of their works.

Finally, the ball has begun rolling as folks at Universal and EMI music publishing have created the Global Repertoire Database which will log all these details. This database should eliminate any issues when it comes to music licensees looking for music to use, and ensure that the correct people are paid for their music.'s about time!
