CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration gives independent songwriters the ability to collect worldwide publishing royalties — helping you make the most money from your music.


For any songwriter, the process of efficiently collecting publishing royalties can be daunting, if not impossible. CD Baby Pro Publishing makes this process easy for the first time with a one-stop publishing administration service. No song should go unpublished!


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.


If you are not already registered with a performing rights organization, we can help. For US and Canadian artists, we’ll save you the trouble and affiliate you with either ASCAP or BMI in the US, or SOCAN in Canada. For other countries where we offer CD Baby Publishing, if you are unaffiliated, we’ll guide you to how to join your appropriate performing rights organization. If you are affiliated with a Performing Rights Organization already, CD Baby Publishing will become the administrator of your publishing. In each scenario, you will still be paid your writer share directly by the Performing Rights Organization.


Even if you're already affiliated with a performing rights organization, and/or have your own publishing company, we can help you make more money from your music. This is YOUR money; don’t let it go uncollected.
