Peer-to-peer file sharing and music downloading has presented new challenges to musicians to collect royalties due them as owners of copyrighted music.

A copyright gives the song writer a limited monopoly over their musical works with certain exceptions and for a specific time period, and covers all aspects of how that song can be used. If the writer is also the recording artist, there are two copyrights; one of the song and one of the sound recording.

Most songwriters work with a publisher to get their music marketed and promoted. In exchange for handling promotion of the music, the publishing house can take a percentage of the copyright, the amount being negotiated with the artist. The publishing house has a vested interest protecting the copyright.
