Copyright In The Digital World

Technology has allowed musicians to develop, document, and distribute their work without being dependent to a record label. There are countless of options available to music creators! You can record music in your home and collaborate with other artists around the world. The music is exposed to new audience with satellite radio, online music stores, and social networking sites. There’s more control to market yourself and your music. However, with the rapid growth of social media and the digital world, it increases the chances of your work being copied and distributed without the author’s permission.  Usually the content is used or shared without links or acknowledgment. So it’s become even more important to protect your music.

Carlin Music UK :: Sub-Publishing Deal

​​Big House Publishing has signed a three-year sub-publishing agreement with London-based music publisher, Carlin Music UK. The deal will enable Big House’s roster to penetrate the UK market and open opportunities for collaborations in synchronization licensing, song-cuts, co-writes and artist development.

Big House Publishing is an independent, full-service music publishing firm that prides itself on being a home for both burgeoning and experienced writers and performing artists with a niche strength and service focus on emerging artists and artist development. Carlin Music is the largest of the few remaining independent music publishers in the UK, and is still owned by the family of its founder, music industry legend, Freddy Bienstock. The catalogue encompasses every conceivable style – from jazz, country and R&B to soul, pop, rock, dance and Musical Theatre – while Leiber & Stoller, Pomus & Shuman, Stephen Sondheim, Phil Spector, Kander & Ebb, Ray Davies, Cliff Richard, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Aretha Franklin, Jim Steinman and, of course, Elvis Presley are just some of Carlin’s distinguished songwriters and composers. Carlin continues to have Top 10 hits with artists such as Black Eyed Peas,Kanye West, Rihanna, Kylie Minogue, Lily Allen, Girls Aloud, Cheryl Cole, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Michael Bublé, 50 Cent, Will.i.am, Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, Massive Attack, Bruno Mars, Robbie Williams and Jessie J to name but a few, demonstrating the variety and timelessness of Carlin’s catalogue.

Peter Thomas, Managing Director of Carlin Music UK, states, “I am delighted to announce our new deal to represent and work with Big House Publishing. In just a few short years Christian and Krista have built an impressive reputation with an incredible portfolio of writers, artists and producers and we are privileged to have this opportunity to work with them.”

Big House Publishing’s Co-Founder & Head of Licensing, Krista Retto, adds, “From the very first call with Peter, the excitement between us bubbled over. It was like we had known and worked with them for years but had discovered long, lost secrets we’re just dying to share. I’m extremely proud and hopeful for the opportunities we will explore together for our stable of writers, producers, bands and solo acts – particularly in sync from my perspective, but also heftily across co-writes and collaborations. The UK market is extremely important to our rosters’ growth.”

Sub-Publishing Deal With Cafe Concerto

PRESS RELEASESEP 15, 2015

Big House Publishing, an emerging leader in the independent music publishing, announces a three-year sub-publishing agreement with Italian-based music publisher, Café Concerto, in order to continue expansion into the Italian market.

Big House Publishing has signed a three-year sub-publishing agreement with Italian-based music publisher, Cafe Concerto. Big House Publishing is an independent, full-service music publishing firm that is home to both “young and experienced writers and performing artists alike” with a niche strength and service focus on emerging artists and artist development. Cafe Concerto, founded in 1996, is one of Italy’s most esteemed independent publishing houses, administering the catalogs of Walt Disney, Twentieth Century Fox, ABC, Bourne, Imagem, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Pink Floyd, Phil Collins, Shapiro, Royalty Network and many others. In addition, Cafe Concerto’s founder, Federico Monti Arduini, sits on the Board of Directors of Italian performing rights organization Società Italiana degli Autori ed Editori (SIAE).

Peter Thall, Big House Publishing’s attorney who enthusiastically introduced the companies says of Cafe Concerto, “Café Concerto is the premier music publisher in Italy, whose staff far surpasses those of many of the majors whose catalogues are huge multiples of theirs.  The time and attention they give to American publishers and to their writers and producers makes one feel as if you are their only client – even as much of their strength comes from the depth of their catalogue within every genre of contemporary music.”

Big House Publishing’s CEO, Christian Cedras, adds, “In our ongoing effort to find foreign partners who are both strong in their respective territories and like-minded in achieving cross-platform exposure for our music and artists, including synch and co-writes, we are thrilled to sign with Café Concerto. As a family-run business, they are based upon strong, clear values and a fierce work ethic.  We’ve already seen the truth of this in play as though the deal is new they are already hard at work with our team.”

5 Questions Potential Interns Should Ask

What I love most about my job at Big House Publishing is the opportunity to sit and speak with the next generation of talent in our industry. It reminds me of when I got my first job in the music business. I just came off of a rather prestigious position in a completely different industry and was convinced I knew it all. I was young, hungry and (in reality) didn’t know my ass from my elbow. That morning when I woke up I knew exactly what I was going to do: walk in, tell them why I was so amazing and  be everyone’s boss in two months. When I stepped into the building my confidence washed away and I realized that this could possibly be the first step towards the rest of my life. That lion in me suddenly became a kitty-cat and I had to face the reality that maybe I wasn’t as experienced as I thought. But, fake it ’til ya make it, habibi. (P.S. your inner dialog is paramount!)
