The figure of a publisher is very important to an artist.
Carlo Bellotti Publishing has a vested interest (being co-owner of the work and therefore the corresponding economic exploitation) to use your material in many different ways and contexts, taking care of many of the aspects related to the licenses of synchronization, use of music recordings and live performances. Carlo Bellotti Publishing also takes care of the security and legal protection of your work,
dealing with litigation, plagiarism, theft, and fraudulent actions that external entities could carry out on the artists we represent.

Carlo Bellotti Publishing protects the interests of the composer. It may be deduced from this that anyone who wants to use a song in a production must have recourse to the license of the publisher, that is the copyright owner. The proceeds of these licenses are divided (by contract) with the artists we represent. In the absence of a publisher, the majority of the proceeds earned from you will be “frozen” by the collecting society such as S.I.A.E. or the equivalent in another country. Many marketing such as synchronization deals will be impossible to be executed (by the artist alone) due to the lack of publisher. The first step of the publisher involves the registration and deposit of the work. The formalization of the authorship of the work allows you to make it publicly available. Carlo Bellotti Publishing exerts a form of bureaucratic protection that the author could not achieve and allows you to multiply your income because
the work edited has a higher value.


Carlo Bellotti Publishing deals with the management of the compositions from administration to protection and marketing/promotion and distribution, thanks to a joint venture with WARNER CHAPPELL MUSIC (Warner Music Group) and a countless amount of partners all over the world. This ensures the precise collection of accrued benefits in all countries where the copyright is protected. Carlo Bellotti Publishing along with WARNER CHAPPELL MUSIC administers the rights to your musical work. Our
Company administers the rights of public execution of your work, including cinema broadcasting and mechanical reproduction rights of your work. Also, other types of rights are administered, such as those of printed reproduction of any kind and the rights of synchronization. Carlo Bellotti Publishing/WARNER CHAPPELL MUSIC serve as a collecting agent for mechanical reproduction and public performance
royalties on behalf of the artist.


Carlo Bellotti Publishing has signed an important agreement of co-publishing with WARNER CHAPPELL MUSIC, the lead company, in the placement of syncs audio/video for the purposes of film/advertising and television. Thanks to this important trust Carlo Bellotti Publishing intends to make visible to all artists edited by the film production companies and advertising, preparing sampler CDs for the music supervisors. Carlo Bellotti Publishing eases synchronizations of any type. The creation of an online
catalogue, which is already active, is the final step toward much-needed exposure for artists in the world of audiovisual production.

Print promotion is one of our priorities regarding all sectors of activity. Regardless of whether we are dealing with the relevant music magazines, smaller local papers or glossy magazines, and no matter whether it is about interviews, tour dates or tour presentations, we cooperate with all forms of print media. In general, we require promo items 8 weeks before release to get the best results.


We take care of a list with many Independent – Radio channels and stations including supra-regional/nationwide stations, radios under public law/federal state-wide stations and local radios, day and night programs.


If a video release is planned, we deliver this to the relevant Channels. Tour promotion and appearance if possible (and relevant) TV Shows are also possible from time to time.


If Tour plans are to be scheduled, we combine the album promo with tour promo. We provide everyone with tour dates and invite as many people as possible. We can also do raffles to get bigger tour announcements. We will also try to get presenters for the tour in combination with the booking agent.

Tour date announcements interviews on tour – all kinds of media Live reviews as well as coordination of guest lists and if possible interviews coordination on the spot.


We serve the CDs to all relevant Online Zines/Mags with a focus on reviews, features and interviews. We put a direct link to the Labels Webpage and the artists' Homepages if possible. As soon as we have some press statements, we send them to the client.
