Musical copyright is when an original composition has been fixed in a medium from which it can be reproduced (having either been recorded or written down in some way), the composer is granted exclusive rights to that piece of music, including:

• the right to reproduce the song
• the right to distribute the song
• the right too perform the song
• The right to create derivative works

One of the keys to understanding how money is made in the world of music publishing is the fact that every recorded piece of music has two separate copyrights (which are not always owned or exploited by the same persons or parties).

The two separate copyrights for recorded music are:
1. The composition itself: a song’s music and lyrics, apart from any particular recording of that composition. This copyright is owned by the songwriter or publisher.

2. The sound recording: a particular recorded version of a musical composition. This copyright is owned by the recording artist and/or label.
