The following information is regarding TuneCore's Publishing Administration service
TuneCore’s commission rate for sync licensing has been updated to 50%, effective July 1, 2023. This change only applies to the license fee itself, and there will be no other changes to your publishing account. This change does not impact our commission rate for collecting your publishing royalties, which will remain at 15%.
Updating our sync commission rate allows us to level up, increase our reach and pursue more deals on behalf of you: our songwriters.
If your song has been licensed before July 1st, 2023, your fee will be commissioned at the rate in place at the time, which was 20%. If your song was licensed on or after July 1, 2023, then the commission rate will be 50%.
If you choose, you are welcome to utilize TuneCore Publishing and opt out of sync. Having us pitch your music for sync is optional. If you would like to opt out, you can simply click ‘opt-out’ in your Publishing Dashboard.
