ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, Harry Fox, SOCAN - are NOT publishers!
ASCAP, BMI and SESAC are three companies in America that collect the broadcast ("performing rights") money for songwriters, so they can get paid for their music being used on radio and TV broadcasts. We don't need to know if a song is ASCAP or BMI. They don't matter here.
Is BMI or ASCAP my publisher?
