The Elephant in the Room: Publishing Splits

Negotiating publishing shares between a DJ and songwriters is complicated, and impacts on multiple projects across the mainstream dance scene. Around every such release there are issues including: is it better to talk about DJ shares before a DJ starts adding music/production to a topline? How does a DJ’s 'market value' impact on publishing shares - and vice versa for A-list songwriters? Does the number of writers on a song affect the percentage publishing a DJ might receive? Also important and unresolved is the fact that songwriters don't usually participate in gig fees, merchandise or artist royalties, so why should DJs have an equal or larger publishing share than the original writers?
