Whenever your original music is performed in a live venue, played on the radio, or streamed online — you are owed what is called a “performance royalty.” Performing Rights Organizations (or P.R.O.s), such as ASCAP and BMI in the US, collect those royalties on behalf of publishers and songwriters. In order for you to tap into this music publishing revenue stream, you need to be affiliated with a Performing Rights Organization. If you aren’t with a P.R.O., we can affiliate you as a songwriter in the US (ASCAP, BMI) and Canada (SOCAN), or guide you to your country's P.R.O. membership application. If you are with a P.R.O. already, we will administer your existing P.R.O. affiliation.
