Worldwide Song Registration

Get your songs registered directly with dozens of royalty collection societies

As a songwriter, you’re owed publishing royalties whenever your music is performed live, played on radio or TV, streamed online, downloaded internationally, and more. But before you can collect that money, royalty societies around the globe need to know your songs exist in the first place. That requires registering ALL of your songs with dozens of agencies worldwide, a task that would be almost impossible to do on your own.

But don’t worry — no need to spend hundreds of hours on paperwork and learning new languages. With CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration, we’ll handle it for you, registering all of your songs directly with collection societies in countries around the world. By signing-up for CD Baby Pro Publishing, we’ll make sure you get paid everything you’re owed — worldwide.
