    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

    So maybe if I got interns to do it and gave them a small percentage?

    If that's what you want to do.

    I'd personally hire experienced supervisors
