Publishing is the business of literally 'publicizing' a songwriter’s or musician's creations. It’s lacks a succinct definition because of the many different ways this can be achieved. We've attached an article from Wikipedia however, publishing in the context of what we do, is a relatively simple matter.
The music industry has transformed significantly in the digital age. Whereas in the past large corporate empires have been the major custodians of the music business, nowadays its more accessible to independent producers and a host of small and micro labels. Albums of remarkable quality are being produced from garages, bedrooms and small spaces but more often than not these products are little more than just recordings. They lack adequate data and special encoding to identify them with their creators and this results in an interruption of the royalties a producer and artiste are entitled to. We endeavour to comprehensively encode the masters we produce with ISRC signatures and international GS1/EAN/UPC/GTIN barcodes. This ensures that our digital audio creations can correctly identify the copyright holder on interrogation.
ISRC is an acronym for International Standard Recording Code. Its a unique number assigned to the recordings by a studio registered with a music rights authority, or representative, in your country. The studio generates and applies this unique code to the master of each track produced on an album, EP or single. In America such industry rights associations are, for example, ASCAP. In Britain its BMR and in South Africa its SAMRO. Software encodes ISRCs between the frames of digital audio during the mastering stage and subsequently decoding software has the ability to recognize these ISRCs in as little as little as 8 frames of audio, a few nano seconds of sound barely enough to be audible.
