Who do I list as publisher of my CD album?

Hello,

 

I'm planning to release an album of 15 original songs as a CD, through CreateSpace PoD.


The boss of an online radio station has expressed interest in playing the album on-air and has asked me, "Who is the publisher?"

 

So, that's my question here. Please advise. May I list myself as publisgher or should/must it be, e.g. 'Createspace Independent Publishing'?

 

Does it matter who the publisher is? My songs are all registered for copyright, royalties, and so on.

 

Thank you for any feedback, have a nice day.

CreateSpace is not the publisher, you are. So you either list the publisher under your name, pen name, or business name. CreateSpace is simply a supply on demand company, be that books CDs, whatever. Doesn't matter to some who the publisher is, matters to others. Indie publishing has a certain stigma attached to it in certain circles, made worse by the amount of dross we often find on the Zon. Good luck with your music.

Joe.

You know what they say: One [wo]man's dross is another [wo]man's rubbish.

You say Toe-may-toe, I say Tuh-mar-toe. Let's call the whole thing off?
