If you have a legacy CD Baby Pro Publishing release, we are able to collect the money owed to you whenever your songs are played - be it by you or by a third party. Your music may generate more money than you realize since you don’t always know all the uses of your music.
If your song is manufactured and sold by a third-party, you are entitled to a mechanical royalty. This will be paid to you by the third-party releasing the album for sale. This third-party could be a label releasing your songs, or a label / artist covering your songs.
All legacy CD Baby Pro Publishing releases will have their songs registered with Harry Fox Agency for easy mechanical licensing via Songfile. We will also collect mechanicals from compulsory licenses via our partner Easy Song.
The CD Baby Pro Publishing service was discontinued as of August 8th, 2023. Any paid release which was signed up for CD Baby Pro Publishing prior to August 8th, 2023 is considered a legacy Pro release and will continue to receive Pro Publishing services. CD Baby now offers a new expanded suite of revenue amplifiers called “CDB Boost” instead.
