What are publishing details?

By default our site displays the controlled publishers that we represent. An * represents the controlled publisher. If you would like to see non-controlled publishers, simply click the Controlled Toggle and you’ll see all the publishers we believe to be associated with a song. If we do not control 100% of a song, you are responsible for contacting the other rights holders and verifying the accuracy of the non-controlled publisher’s information. Our site is simply a guide. If we know who the non-controlled publishers are, we try to provide their website or email in the Contact column.
