Brazil is unique in that it has many Performing Rights Organizations. CD Baby Pro Publishing is available for any songwriter or composer in Brazil regardless of Performing Rights Organization affiliation. If you are not already registered with a Brazilian Performing Rights Organization as a songwriter for your music, during the sign up for CD Baby Pro Publishing you will have to join a Performing Rights Organization before completing the CD Baby Publishing process. After you join a Brazilian Performing Rights Organization, you will then come back to CD Baby to complete the Publishing Administration registration process which involves CD Baby notifying your Performing Rights Organization that CD Baby will be administering your songwriter account as your publishing administrator. CD Baby as a publisher is affiliated with the association ABRAMUS, but we can administer your songwriter affiliation with any Brazilian Performing Rights Organization.
