What does CD Baby Pro Publishing do?

CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration makes music publishing easy for independent songwriters. Gone are the headaches of trying to figure this out for yourself. CD Baby Pro Publishing gives you a convenient way to collect publishing royalties from all over the world.


When you sign up for CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration, we will:

  • Affiliate you as a songwriter with a Performing Rights Organization (P.R.O.) in the US (ASCAP, BMI) and Canada (SOCAN); administer your existing P.R.O. affiliation; or guide you to your country's P.R.O. membership application
  • Register your songs with royalty collection societies around the world
  • Collect all the performance royalties you’re owed worldwide
  • Collect all your worldwide mechanical royalties (for streams and international downloads), which Performing Rights Organizations do NOT collect

Sign-up for CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration to get your money for:

  • All mechanical royalties from Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming sites. These are generated from every single stream.
  • All international mechanical royalties from download stores like iTunes. These are generated from every single sale.
  • All performance royalties from streaming services (like Spotify), radio, TV, live concert performances and much more.
  • Global YouTube publishing administration for any video on YouTube that contains your music.
  • Hundreds of other sources of songwriting and publishing royalties from around the world.

* NOTE: 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).
