Brandon Martinez, INDMUSIC Co-founder/CEO
Earlier this week we announced that TuneCore can now help artists make money on YouTube. We also announced our exciting new partnership with INDMUSIC, which allows artists to make money when their music is used on YouTube.

Both Company’s Artists Can Access TuneCore’s Music Publishing Service & Opt to Join INDMUSIC Network
New York, NY, November 20, 2013
TuneCore, the premiere digital music distributor and publishing administrator, today announced a new partnership with INDMUSIC, YouTube’s largest independent music network, to help TuneCore Artists get paid more efficiently for the use of their music on YouTube.
Navigating music rights and management on YouTube is often challenging, both for the artists and the music licensee. Through their partnership, TuneCore and INDMUSIC, a YouTube Certified network, will protect and empower independent music content creators to fully monetize their YouTube views while retaining creative control and rights to their content. Starting today, all artists from both TuneCore and INDMUSIC’s customer-base are offered the opportunity to capture more revenue from their YouTube views by signing up for TuneCore Publishing Administration and the INDMUSIC Multi-Channel Network.
Anyone who spends time on YouTube (don’t even try to pretend you haven’t spent a few evenings learning how to make jackets for miniature dachshunds) knows that people make videos all the time using other artists’ music in the background. For artists, this means that your music could be heard by millions of people around the world. (Awesome!) But often, this also means that you don’t get paid for your music. (Not so awesome.)
Well, here’s some good news: Now TuneCore can help you get the money your music earns from YouTube…
Music Publishing Administration Tool Facilitates Quicker Royalty Collecting for Songwriters
New York, NY, October 30, 2013
TuneCore, the premier provider of digital music distribution, announced today a major enhancement to its Music Publishing Administration Service with the launch of a new tool that provides songwriters unprecedented insights into the song registration process, along with actionable feedback. The tool will facilitate quicker registrations and more efficient royalty collection by TuneCore from over 60 countries…
The process of song registration and royalty collection involves multiple steps and coordination between the songwriter, publishing administrator, digital music stores and local collection societies in over 60 countries. With all of this happening, it can be difficult for songwriters to know exactly where they are in the process and if there’s anything they need to do to speed things along.
Luckily, this process just got a whole lot easier for songwriters. We’ve launched a new, web-based portal within our Publishing Administration service that will give you ultimate transparency into the song registration process: Song Registration Manager. Through the tool you can see and resolve any song registration issues like missing splits or disputes, which expedites our ability to collect your songwriter royalties…
