MODULE 4: LESSON 2
Check out the content below about: Joining A PRO
In order to make sure you are paid performances royalties owed to you, you must register your song with a Performance Rights Organization (PRO). Don’t send to a radio station, put on YouTube, release on iTunes, etc. without registering first. There are a few different PRO’s out there, but the most common are BMI and ASCAP.
With BMI, it’s free to join and contract last for 2 years (and will automatically renew, unless you decided to cancel). You can only belong to one PRO at a time, so you can’t be a member of both BMI and ASCAP. To get paid, you must provide your bank account and routing number.
