Apple Launches new Music Publishing Division that will also Include a sub-division to Develop Songwriters
It's being reported today by a music business site that Apple has launched a new internal division dedicated to music publishing led by respected exec Elena Segal.
Music Business Worldwide (MBW) reports that "Segal, who was previously Legal Director of iTunes International, is stepping up to become Apple Music's Global Director of Music Publishing.
Elena Segal covered a wide range of legal and licensing matters for iTunes and Apple Music – including the initial licensing required to launch the iTunes Store in multiple territories. Segal also headed up licensing for the global launch of Apple Music, which first arrived in over 100 markets back in June 2015.Music Business Worldwide
The legal & business affairs specialist who is well-known amongst the upper echelons of the music publishing community, will split her time between London and the US.
MBW hears that the new music publishing team at Apple Music will contain sub-divisions including Operations, Commercial, Publisher Relations and A&R. The latter refers to assisting with the development of key songwriters, rather than signing talent directly."
