We have launched in countries where we are able to directly administer your publishing with the Performing Rights Organization. Direct relationships allow for us to collect your royalties as quickly and accurately as possible without relying on additional intermediates, who will deduct additional fees. We are always looking to add more countries to CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration to help more songwriters start collecting money they are owed for the use of their songs.
CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration is currently available in the following countries and territories with many more coming soon. If you write or co-write songs and live in one of the following places, you can sign up for the CD Baby Pro publishing service. If you are already with a performing rights organization, we will administer that publishing membership.
Affiliating with a PRO outside of the US.
If you aren’t already with a Performing Rights Organization, you will need to join one of the organizations as a songwriter. Below lists which organization you should join for your location. Please note that it can take several weeks for a Performing Rights Organization to finalize your application. Please contact that organization if you need to inquire about your membership application status.
