What is Publishing?
What is publishing? It is your property/content (intellectual property), owned by you whether book, music, blogs, or any information that you share with the public. The business of publishing and the when, what, where and the how of publishing can be complicated. So for the purpose of my tips on publishing, I will speak mainly on music publishing and/or book publishing and ocassionally speak on other publishing labels. If you were to write a song, you are the original writer/owner of the song and if you never placed your song in public view, it has not been published. When your song is shared with any public format, it is published. Oh and the minute you create the song and place on paper or record it, it is copyright protected. However If I want to make sure you are protected infringement, register your song with the US Copyright Office.
