TuneCore Publishing Administration was launched by the digital distributor TuneCore in November of 2011. It provides an integrated service that allows TuneCore artists to collect the revenue from their music downloads and streams, and also allows them to receive their songwriter/publisher royalties from hundreds of societies, digital stores, and other sources, through one entity which acts as their Worldwide Publishing Administrator. The result is significantly streamlined global publishing administration for independent artists and publishers.
TuneCore Publishing Administration currently has 10,000 songwriters signed up for its service, representing 125,000 compositions. The service is available to all songwriters and publishers not currently represented by a Publishing Administrator.
