Music is of different types. One music is which you hear to relax. Another kind of music is often associated with commercials something that is necessary but you never acknowledge. These artists create music for these products, which is called music publishing.

Now when the commercial airs, part of the generated income goes to the music artist. This is different from a general concert or selling records. It is associated with selling out a product. Hence, the earning of this music artist depends on the music publishing rather than entertainment music. You can hence go towards to different lines even in the music industry.

Music publishing refers to the use of music commercially, or to make money for a product other than the music itself. For example, a song used in a commercial for laundry detergent will generate income for the artist who originally created that music.

It is different from selling tickets to see a musician perform because the music is being used to sell an entirely different item. You could benefit from music publishing if you have music that you think might be used to sell a product.
