Publishers & Songwriters Can Now Register for PMPA Training SessionsWednesday, April 6th, 2016
Whether you’re a music publisher or want to become one, or you’re a songwriter or composer wanting to learn about the music publishing world, you can now register for one of a series of training sessions presented by Professional Music Publishers’ Association (PMPA, or APEM in French) – and organization whose goal is to ensure that music publishing is done in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and best practices.
The first training session, accredited by the Québec Bar Association, is “Negotiating a Publishing Deal,” to be held on April 7, 2016, at INIS, in Montréal. The speakers will be publisher David Murphy and lawyer Jean-Philippe Rocheleau, and their objective is to provide publishers, songwriters and composers with tools to better negotiate a publishing deal.
Some of the other training sessions offered by the PMPA are “Optimizing Your Publishing Revenue” (Apr. 14 and 21); “Using Music Works for Audio-Visual Purposes, Clearing Rights and Tariffs” (May 5); and “Operation, Organization and Management of a Publishing Company – Art Direction” (May 12).
