Comparison of ASCAP and BMI
The main PROs in the U.S. include ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC.The PRO will ensure all venues have a license to play music, collect public performance royalties from all, track who hasn’t paid up and then determine the composer, publisher, and songwriter to pay for each instance, They compile a list of what music was played where and includes this information with every payment to each artist it represents. The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) is a not-for-profit organization. It is unique in that it's controlled entirely by the composers, writers, and music publishers that make up its membership. Launched in 1914, ASCAP is the oldest of the "Big Three" by about 16 years. It represents more than 10 million works from over 550,000 members.
I like learning and I love networking, so the more workshops the more networking I’m able to do.
