TuneCore, the online music distributor for artists like Beck, Bjork, Aretha Franklin and Jay-Z is launching its Songwriter Publishing Administrative Service today. The new service will be an opportunity for writers to issue licenses, protect copyrights and songs, collect money and register their copyrights around the globe. CEO Jeff Price proudly remarks that “no longer will songwriters be shut out of a system. In addition to letting artists get their money in a direct and transparent manner our team is also getting the artists their earnings faster and matching up millions of uncollected dollars with their rightful owners.” Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails is one of several hundred songwriters who have already signed up for the beta testing period of the service, registering his new project How To Destroy Angels. TuneCore believes the service will get these writers “more money in a shorter period of time.” Because the service works directly with digital music services, it eliminates the liaisons used by other services, thus allowing significant increase in songwriter’s earnings. Songwriters can join TuneCore for the one time fee of $49.99 and 10% of all money collected by TuneCore. At present, the service is available exclusively to artists using the TuneCore distribution service, but TuneCore aims to open the service to any rights holder very soon.
