Songtrust (founded in October, 2010) and Myspace Music this morning announced a partnership to bring Songtrust’s music publishing management services to the social network’s (vast) audience of DIY songwriters and bands.
Songtrust thus aims to streamline what has historically been a complicated process of protecting song copyrights, collecting royalties, and maximizing creative licensing opportunities through a single dashboard.
Courtney Holt, President of Myspace Music, a joint-venture with equity stakes from major record labels, said Songtrust provides a much needed music publishing administration solution for the millions of do-it-yourself artists on the network.
Myspace Music says it will promote the Songtrust service to their audience of musicians.
It’s a partnership that makes plenty of sense, and it’s good to see Myspace Music focusing on offering songwriters and artists the tools they need to build a successful career in music, too.
