Music Composers Unite!

I've avoided any libraries that re-title my work. Taking that into consideration, is it better to have your compositions in a single library or as many libraries as possible?

OPTION 1: Each composition is in only ONE library (exclusive or not).

OPTION 1 RATIONALE:
If my works are in multiple libraries, they may compete against one another thereby lowering the price I receive. If each composition is in a single location, this is avoided.

OPTION 2: All of my pieces are in multiple libraries (non-exclusive).

OPTION 2 RATIONALE:
The chance of your compositions being heard is greater.

Any thoughts on the subject?

Thanks.

Good point Ray. The wheels of the world do move slowly.
I'm in favour of exclusivity. Only because PRS seem to have a hard enough time keeping track of what is being used as it is, without the same tune being registered under many different names :-)

That's only my opinion though :-)

Eric,
This post is perfect timing!
A Music Library has just offered to publish my latest CD, and they wanted an exclusive contract.
There are ten tracks on the CD and I thought about signing long and hard.
I say - as long as the library has a good reputation and you speak to the person who set the company up....go for it!

Read the contract carefully.
