In order to optimize your catalog’s monetization in the Digital Music Services, it is important to correctly credit your release’s author and composer.
In addition to improving your release’s referencing in the Stores, it allows for the Collecting Societies to identify the authors and composers correctly, making the distribution of their rights easier.
