Can I register cover songs through your publishing administration service?

No, you cannot register covers of works within your Songtrust account. This is because Songtrust only collects on behalf of the composition, and you must be considered the original owner/writer of a work in order to claim a share of the composition. Because covers are not considered new, original material, you are unable to collect royalties on the composition share of cover works you record and release.
