WHAT YOU WANT
You want a sub-publisher in a foreign territory who treats your catalog and money as if it were their own. You need the thorough and aggressive collection of all your royalty income. To do this, a sub-publisher must have the experience, key industry relationships and the technological tools to collect all of your income and remit it as quickly as possible. You also want a sub-publisher that is focused on the creative placement and proactive promotion of your songs in film, television, commercials, games and other media. In short, you want added value.
