Managing a Release's Publishing Information

How to edit publishing info for each individual track of a new or existing album in your catalog

To edit publishing information for a track that has already been added to your Family in Music catalog, navigate to Assets from the main menu. Click the Tracks tab, search for the relevant track, click on it, and then click the Publishing tab. 

If you are editing all information for an album release, publishing information will be entered after entering track information. 

To add publishing information for each song within a release, click the title of the track to be edited, and then complete the following steps: 

Enter the full name of a contributor to the song. As the text is entered, matching names from existing assets will appear and may be selected. If there is more than one contributor, you may repeat this process as many times as necessary. 

Select the role of the current contributor. Among others, the options are: 

  • Arranger 
  • Composer 
  • Writer 
  • Writer-Composer 

Enter the percentage share of the publishing rights the contributor is entitled to. This will be used within Family in Music for further accounting and earnings reports.   

Select the publishing type. The options are:   

  • Copyright control (self-published) 
  • Public domain (no publisher) 
  • Published (managed by a publisher) 

Enter the name of the publisher. As the text is entered, matching names from previously entered publishers will appear, and you may be selected from the list. 

Click “+ Add another contributor” for each additional contributor with a percentage share of publishing.

Click Save to confirm all entries and return to the Publishing Information tab. 

When editing publishing information for an album, repeat this step for all available tracks as necessary. 

When all tracks have publishing information completed, click Next to continue on to Review & Save the release. 


Note: The Share percentage must add up to 100% for all writers included on each track.
