How does CD Baby Pro work?

CD Baby Pro provides professional royalty collection services to independent songwriters. We act as publishing administrator for our artists, meaning we can register songs and collect publishing royalties on their behalf. Revenue from royalties relating to the sound recording are NOT a part of CD Baby Pro's collection services — only publishing royalties.

For any songwriter, the process of efficiently collecting publishing royalties can be daunting, if not impossible. There are multiple societies and collection agencies with which to contend, endless paperwork, and confusing jargon. CD Baby Pro makes this process easy for the first time with a one-stop publishing administration service.

With CD Baby Pro, your works will be registered with a Performing Rights Organization (ASCAP, BMI, or SOCAN) as well as mechanical licensing agents around the world.

* Songwriters in the UK and Ireland can use CD Baby Pro as well, but must affiliate directly with their local Performance Rights Organization first (PRS and IMRO respectively).
