Second 2018 installment of all-around introduction to music publishing

London – May 22, 2018. – Reinforcing its commitment to furthering education within the music industry, Vistex is proud to continue its yearlong sponsorship of the UK Music Publishers Association’s (MPA) Induction Course, a quarterly event focused on providing an all-around introduction to music publishing. The first 2018 Induction Course took place in February, and the second course runs May 22-23.

The Induction Course is led by an expert group of panelists who highlight key areas of music publishing for newcomers to the industry, including copyright royalties, sync, societies, legal issues, and data.

Stephen Carlisle, Senior Business Analyst at Vistex, spoke on "How to Register a Song," and provided an overview of royalties within Music Maestro, Vistex’s dedicated solution for music publishers.

Antonia Gilham, CEO of the Music Publishers Association said, "We’re thrilled to have Vistex sponsoring our MPA Induction Course throughout 2018. The renowned course is truly a one stop shop for all things music publishing, covering copyright royalties, sync, collecting societies, legal issues and data. Bringing Vistex on board feels like a natural fit as their Music Maestro program is an important solution for administering song catalogues and any good publisher will know that reliable and efficient data is key to building a great publishing company!"

"Vistex has supported progress within the music industry for many years, and our solutions are used in the day-to-day operations of hundreds of music publishers throughout the world," said Amos Biegun, Vistex’s Global Head of Rights and Royalties. "We are very eager to provide a solid foundation for the next generation of industry professionals, and partnering with the MPA to support the Induction Courses was a logical next step."

Since its inception, the MPA has championed the interests of its members and committed itself to the progression and educational support of music professionals in the UK. The MPA works to promote an understanding of the value of music publishing and the importance of copyright and provides extensive training, as well as discounted rates to music industry events and conferences.
