Let TuneCore Music Publishing Administration Get Your Music Placed in TV Shows, Films, and More…

The escalating number of cable channels and new TV shows has increased the demand for music.

When you sign-up for TuneCore Music Publishing Administration and add your compositions, the compositions you distribute through TuneCore will be included in our invite-only Synchronization & Master Licensing Database. This exclusive, online Database is available only to Music Supervisors and allows them to listen to the recordings of your compositions. We make it easy for Music Supervisors to find your music, allowing them to search by keyword, genre, iTunes sales rank at TuneCore, song title, writer, and artist. These search parameters give Music Supervisors the freedom to find any composition within our Database that suits their needs and request a license for the use—from there, our in-house licensing department handles all negotiations and licensing on your behalf.

10 Key Reasons to Get a Publishing Deal from TuneCore

Worldwide Registration and Royalty Collection

TuneCore globally registers a songwriter’s compositions with the societies and digital stores in over 60 countries and collects royalties for all revenue types relating to your compositions.

In-House Licensing & Creative Team

If you distribute through TuneCore, your compositions are included in our Sync & Master Licensing Database that is available exclusively to Music Supervisors. Music Supervisors search for music via the database to use in their projects. Sync licensing and negotiations are handled in-house for film & TV uses, mechanicals, print, and more.

Maximum YouTube Monetization

TuneCore and INDMUSIC, YouTube’s largest independent music network, will help you earn the most money from your YouTube views. We monetize both your composition and sound recording for maximum YouTube earnings potential. Keep 90% of all royalties earned from your composition and 80% of all royalties earned from your sound recording when others use your music in YouTube videos and on your own YouTube channel. When you set your YouTube preferences, you can choose to exclude (whitelist) you own channel from being monetized by TuneCore and INDMUSIC and if you choose this, you will keep 100% of the royalties from your own YouTube channel.


For compositions distributed by TuneCore, we use your Distribution sales data to audit the societies and digital stores to ensure you get all the money you’ve earned.
