Why Signing Up with ASCAP or BMI is Not Enough
Music publishing collection for ya songs is more than signing up with ASCAP or BMI.
If ya make ya own original music as an independent artist, songwriter, producer, composer, or lyricist, there are more opportunities than ever to earn significant income from music publishing.
Even though many artists think they covered all the bases in terms of publishing royalty collections when they affiliate themselves with an organization like ASCAP, BMI, or SESAC.
ASCAP or BMI is not your publisher
It’s first important to know that ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SOCAN, and other associations that collect performance royalties on behalf of songwriters and publishers are calle(Performing Rights Organizations) or P.R.O.s. They are not your publisher, and do no act as ya publisher. They do one thing collect performance royalties.
Performing Rights Organizations do not collect all the publishing royalties you’re owed just the PREFORMANCE royalty
While these services do perform a valuable and vital role in making sure artists get paid, they don’t do it all. They’re only concerned with one slice of the publishing pie — and that means songwriters are leaving a lot of money on the table in the form of uncollected publishing royalties. #GodFirst #Networking #Inspiring #Knowledge #Music #Artist #Songwriters #Producers #Promoters #Entertainers
