The following information is regarding TuneCore's Publishing Administration service
Your TuneCore Publishing Administration agreement is a one (1) year agreement beginning on the date your payment for the service is received and process. After the first year, the agreement automatically renews on a quarterly basis with no additional renewal cost to you.
If you wish to terminate, you can do so after this first year of your agreement.
Once we receive your request, we will send you a letter confirming the termination and the effective date of the termination.
If you send us the request to terminate at least 45 days before the end of the quarter, the effective date of the termination will be the end of that current calendar quarter. If you send us the request to terminate less than 45 days before the end of the quarter, the effective date will be the end of the following quarter.
For your reference, calendar quarters are:
- January 1st - March 31st
- April 1st - June 30th
- July 1st - September 30th
- October 1st - December 31st
For example, if someone terminated 3/23 then the termination date would be 6/30. However, if someone terminated 6/15 then the effective date would be 10/1.
It should be noted that TuneCore has the right to collect on income generated during the term of the agreement for 12 months after the termination date. These are called Post Term Collection rights.
It is also important to note that it is the clients' responsibility, or their new publishing administrator, to notify the collection societies of any change in administration. TuneCore simply provides a termination letter which can then be distributed by the client or new publishing administrator.
