In order to qualify for membership of Koda a music publisher must meet the criteria for operating a music publishing business. This is to say that they must disseminate musical works created by their associated authors, i.e. the works for which the music publisher and authors have entered into a publishing agreement.
Koda cannot offer legal advice on how to start a music publishing company. We urge all new music publishers/authors to approach one of the music organisations that hold the appropriate knowledge and experience within the field.
