The answer lies in a shift toward publishing participation and producers are starting to demand songwriting participation in return for their services. Has this type of compensation always been due to the producer? Did producers let it slide for years, foregoing publishing participation in return for large producer fees? Or is this yet another party now inserting themselves in the only game still generating income...publishing?
