After you have familiarized yourself with TuneSmith’s interface by entering the data of your creative talents you can begin with the administration of your songs.
Below the main and alternative song titles you will find two fields for the general copyright info of the songs. Depending on your setup options this information will be printed below the song title on your lyrics sheets.
If you are the sole creator of the song and share part of the publisher portion you will need to create one split entry for yourself and one split entry for your publisher.
In the pop-up menu you can quickly select a specific creative talent by typing his or her full name or part of it. To exclude certain creative talents from the copyright claimant list or specify the format of their names go to the address book of your creative talents. Click on the small arrow next to the pseudonym entry field to make the appropriate selection from the pop-up menu.
Complete your copyright split entry in your song catalog by choosing ‘Composer & Author’ in the copyright type pop-up menu. Enter the appropriate portion in the ‘Writer Portion’ column and in the ‘Publisher Portion’ column. Should you sign a contract with a subpublisher in the future you can easily add additional copyright splits to any song.
