I'm trying to get my head around music
Is there any recommended books or websites to help? I've been
reading a book from an American on music publishing but I believe they have different
publishing rules and regs so I really wanted to find out more about UK's /Euro music

MCPS is the organisation who collect money for the recording of published works (generally
for commercial gain but there are other areas too). Important - it is the money for the
recording of the work, not the recording itself. That is a different royalty.
the organisation who collect money for the performance of published works.
Who gets what:
The publisher tales the publishers share and distributes
that part to the published members of a track (generally the writers!!)
gets the writers share direct.
The above agencies collect the money at source
and send half to the writer and half to the publisher.
Sale of recording of published work ----> money (8.5% of the dealer
price) -> MCPS -> publisher and writer
Performance of published
work ----> money --> PRS -> publisher and writer
splits vary from 90/10 deals in favour of the writer all the way to 100% to the publisher
for many libraries
