music . Now what I'm not understanding is joining a society , their acceptance of membership is to have your material already packaged in an audio or visual form and to have three alternate business names for your music publishing co . So being that we need a CD to join a society and you have to have either record label , a music publisher or your own publishing company to manufacture your CD first i can't comprehend the need for additional business names if we are going to name our music publishing company which will be a ll . with the fictitious name we have registered already . please enlighten me on this matter .
