    Creating a subsidiary company that is a publishing company?

    Ok, so you have a record label and are starting to generate a catalog of music. Now you want to really get involved in licensing, so do you create a subsidiary publishing company and hire 1 full time employee that spends all their time seeking out licensing opportunities and handling publishing?

    Would you pay them a salary or give them commission whenever they get a song licensed?

    That would depend on them and their level of experience

    on one hand you can pay a a salary and get very few placements or you can pay then a % and make them work for their money, so it depends on how you want to operate your business and what that supervisor is willing to accept

    If that's what you want to do.

    I'd personally hire experienced supervisors
