200% writer's share??

    I am licensing some of my tracks that I composed to a television program. I am not involved with a publishing company, so I understand I am entitled to BOTH the writers share and the publishers share of royalties.

    My question is this:
    When dealing with cue sheets, as well as license agreement language, is OK to call my share 200% writers share? Has anyone else here done this before?

    Basically I am trying to avoid setting up my own publishing company since I am not at that level of business yet.

    Many thanks...

    If you are not going to get a lawyer or register yourself as a publisher with BMI or ASCAP (whichever you have registered with already as a songwriter). You are going into this negotiation unarmed. Depending on the kindness of strangers didn't work out so well for Blanch.

    Good luck.
