 The ISA Services

If you have a song but are unsure of its commercial potential,you will get advice on this as well as being told you how suitable your recording is.
We will also advise you on the appropriate next steps.
Before showing your song to anybody else, or before promoting the song online or by post, you should always do your best to protect the copyright of your material.
Some Song Copyright Services charge from £20 or $30 per song. However, the ISA Copyright Service is free.
Send us the material, and a Copyright Certificate will be with you by return.
If you need further promotion advice or contact information, Directory Information maintains a giant database of every recording act since 1967, and can give you the relevant address by return post or email.
No matter how obscure the act, or how difficult it normally is to get contact information for them, we can help.

If you get an offer of a contract, our free Advisory service will be ready to advise, and point you in the right direction, so you can maximise your income from your work.

What People Say About The ISA
One Or Two Opinions On The ISA
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE ISA
We do not solicit endorsements or testimonials from our members. If they have something to say, they tend to say it! Here are just a tiny fraction of the complimentary letters and emails which we have received.
"I joined forty years ago in 1967....best move I ever made."
Bill Fletcher, Liverpool, UK
"May I commend you all again for the remarkable service you provide - it really is very much appreciated. Your advice and attention to detail are excellent. There are unfortunately too few businesses around (of any kind) who provide such services. They could learn much from your example! And you may add this to your testimonials if you wish".
Billy Ross Helvetia Road Pukekohe 2120 New Zealand
"I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks for all the help and kindness shown to me by yourself and other members of the ISA generally over the last few years. I am sure that it is mainly due to this that many outside the music business manage to make any impact, and we are lucky that someone like Mr. Liddane is willing to spend so very much of his time in furthering the work of other people. I have found it very reassuring on many occasions recently to discuss technical and contractual details that would be pitfalls for the novice.
John Fisher, Thorpe Bay, Essex, UK.
"As a recent member of ISA I would like to say how professional I find your organisation and also what great value (and I hope that doesn't sound too patronising!)"
Barry Speed, Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain
"Since I subscribed ten years ago, I have had songs out on seven albums, and to date a total of 46 songs published both here and in the USA! I'd like to thank the ISA for the brilliant work they do"
Geoffrey Crust, Heartbeat Music, Boston, Lincs, UK
"I appreciate your very prompt reply, and your reassurance. Wonderful to see someone doing things right.Keep up the work"
Nigel Normanton, Leeds
"I am already dazzled by your warm approach and all of the interesting information I have already received"
Terri Bonnah, Canada
"Thanks a million for your help. You offer a great service!"
Peter Croton, Basel, Switzerland
"Once again, I thank you for your extremely prompt response. You people are terrific!"
Bill Derham, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
"Although I am not at present as active in the songwriting world as I used to be, I still think that you are the greatest single help to songwriters in the UK (and possibly throughout the world)"
Waldi Schubert, London, UK
"It is hard for me to fathom that there could actually be a person out there that cares as much as you do about your members! Maybe I'm just showing my American cynicism but my experience tells me that you are a jewel amongst the lumps of coal that represent the greater part of the mine of humanity"
Bruce McCormack, Sparks, Nevada, USA
"Further to one of your tips, we have just been offered a publishing contract!
Billy Boy Brown, London, UK
Thank you very much for your email. I am already doing your course and am finding it fascinating. What a good service you provide"
Barbara Cottman-Jackson, BCJ Productions, Pennsylvania, USA
"I also wanted to thank you for being so supportive to the songwriting community and being a tremendous resource for the music industry as a whole. We recently posted a request for original material which you picked up in your newswire and the response we've been receiving has been quite impressive. Serious, professional and talented writers from across the globe. Much appreciated! Keep up the good work"
Tracy Hunter, Solfege Entertainment Group, Florida, USA
"I would just like to pay tribute to all the work you put into the publications. I find the quality of the writing in the magazine, and the production, quite remarkable, especially as I suspect, you operate on something of a shoestring.
Still a real "labour of love" that I for one, am happy to acknowledge"
Leon Carr, Production Music Publishing Company, London, UK
"It was the most accurate profile of our activities I have yet read"
Norman Petty, NorVaJak Music, New Mexico, USA
"I am more than honoured to be with you. I really enjoy
Songwriter Magazine - it is lways so interesting"
Marijohn Wilkins, Buckhorn Music, Nashville, USA
FAQ Frequently Asked Questions
Questions Asked By Potential ISA Members
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Every day, we get questions from ISA Members, and indeed potential members, many of which are of general interest to all songwriters. Here is a random selection, but if your question is not answered here, drop us an email and we will do our best to assist.
I have an idea for a hit song. How long will it take for me to make some money from the song?
We have absolutely no idea, and if you are starting your songwriting career on this basis, and no other - then the International Songwriters Association is certainly not going to be of any use to you.
Songwriting is a very competitive business, and is not to be compared
with buying a lottery ticket on a Friday night, in order to become a
millionaire on Saturday.
Why must I take a month's free trial membership first?
Songwriting is not a "get-rich-quick" scheme, nor is it for everybody no matter how keen you may initially be.
Songwriting is a business, and has to be taken seriously if you
want to succeed in what is a very, very competitive field.
"Wannabe Songwriters" are all very well, but their enthusiasm soon fades whereas the real songwriter is in it for the long haul.
Insisting that all comers take a one month free trial, during which they receive everything a full member receives, and can read all
the ISA Publications and use all the ISA Services, means that
they can see for themselves if this business is quite what they
thought it might turn out to be like.
That is why we insist that anybody joining the International Songwriters
Association for the first time, must start with our free trial membership.
That way, you do not waste your time.
Are there any restrictions on joining the ISA?
We do not (knowingly) accept writers under the age of 18 except in very
rare circumstances, and only on the verified signature of a parent or guardian.
This is not to suggest that there is an absence of talent amongst young
songwriters, but such a rule helps to as act as a form of protection for
youngsters, who may discover the business to be a lot more competitive
than they thought it might be.
In any event, people under 18 are not able to legally enter into contracts
on their own and we would advise all songwriters not to get involved in the
business side of songwriting, until they are mature enough to so do.
Remember too that we offer unlimited free advice to writers, who are
not members, so there is really no need to join the ISA, until you are
at the legal age to sign any music business contracts you may be offered. And that age is 18.
You say you do not take members who are under 18 years of age,
but how can you tell for example, that I am over 18?
There is no foolproof method of knowing this, but it just so happens that
in most countries, people under 18 cannot have a credit card, or operate
bank accounts in their own name, so we accept the fact that a person has
one or other of these, as sufficient proof of age.
Apart from the membership fee, are there extra or hidden fees?
Absolutely not. The one membership fee covers all four publications,
and unlimited use of the ISA Private Members Site, along with all services
such as Copyright, Assessment, Advice, Directory Information, Printing etc. As you discover when you join, we have nothing else for sale anyway!
How unlimited is "unlimited"? If I use the copyright service every week, or even if I feel like it, every day. is there a limit?
Absolutely not. New members always use the services more than established members, and that is both expected, and indeed, welcomed.
How easy is it to cancel my membership if I decide not to stay on after the free first month?
We have made that as simple as we possibly could.
For example if you join using PayPal, as you can see from the form, no payment is sent to us until 30 days has passed. So just cancel PayPal at any stage during the 30 days. Do not even notify us - PayPal, will do that automatically.
If on the other hand, you join by cheque, we do not lodge it for 30 days, so let us (or your bank) know you want to stop, and we will tear it up, or if you prefer, return it by post to you. (Of course, you could also post-date it by 30 days if you preferred.)
If you join by Banker's Standing Order, we cannot start that for 30 days, so again, simply tell us (or your bank) that you are not proceeding.
What happens to songs I have copyrighted with you, if I decide to leave the ISA?
Any songs copyrighted with us, remain protected for the same period they would have been covered for, had you remained a member. Obviously, you cannot copyright further songs once you have resigned your membership!
Once the free period is over, can I pay in instalments?
If you wish, you can pay quarterly (every three months) by Bank Standing Order. Alternatively, you can pay monthly, by Credit Card/PayPal. Both the above are recurring payments and can be cancelled any time by you. Finally, you can pay half-yearly or annually by Cheque or Cash.
How easy is it to cancel my membership if I decide I would like to
leave after two months, or six months or a year for example?
We have also made that as simple as we possibly could.
Just cancel PayPal, or your Bank Standing Order, or simply ignore
the renewal reminder sent if you originally paid by cheque.
You are always totally in control of your own membership.
Does the ISA take a percentage of my song or my income, if for example,
I get a contract as a result of information provided by you?
Absolutely not. There are no percentages of income involved in any
dealings with the International Songwriters Association.
I do not write mainstream pop. Would I benefit from ISA Membership?
If you do not pen the type of material which is potentially money-making,
such as pop, rock, r&b or country, please contact us first and tell us what
it is you do write.
There are some niche money-making markets, such as writing for television,
children etc., which we do handle, but if you write the type of music which
is rarely or ever heard on radio, you may not find any commercial benefit
from membership of the International Songwriters Association.
However, we do not refuse membership on the grounds of the type of music
written and we have members who write jazz, or folk, neither of which
are - generally speaking - all that commercially rewarding.
All we suggest is - if you write for a minority market, tell us first. We may be able to recommend an alternative organisation.
Can I purchase a gift membership for another songwriter?
Yes, but before doing so, please tell us the relationship between you, and the person who will be the recipient of the gift.
In any event, we will not accept gift memberships intended for any writer who is under the age of eighteen.
If you wish us to enclose a gift card with the package, please send us the text of the message to be put on the card.

One of our members told us - "There is too much going on in the ISA to explain it in one page. You would have to be a member first to understand everything the ISA offers."
Well we're not sure about that, but if the above page has been more of a hindrance than a help, (another member wrote "way too much information - nobody will read to the bottom of the page"), then why not try it all out for free for the next thirty days?
It costs you nothing - and we know you will stay on.
