Music publishing takes the spotlight

News: 25th October 2010 by Louise Dodgson under Music Publishing

With the recording business experiencing decline, music publishing is now stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight.

This article below by the Financial Times takes a look at how things are changing in these two industries.
