A Composition is the creation/writing of a new original piece.
A composition is represented by a unique International Standard Musical Work Code. Compositions are usually represented by Publishers.
There are 2 rights holders of compositions:
- Publishers AND Writers/Composers.
A publisher may own up to 50% of a composition. The remaining share is owned by the Writer/Composer. Each publisher and composer must be registered at a Performance Rights Organization.
