No, Songtrust is not a Performing Rights Organization. We act as a publishing administrator to collect publishing royalties on behalf of songwriters. These royalties include performance royalties paid by Performing Rights Organizations (e.g. ASCAP, BMI, SESAC).
You do need to be affiliated with a PRO in order to use Songtrust's service. If you're not yet affiliated with one, we can help you get going. And if you're already set up, we can simply start collect royalties on your behalf.
Songtrust gives music makers the easiest way to get paid publishing royalties from the US and abroad.
We help bands and songwriters register their songs with agencies around the world to collect royalties generated from their songs being played on-air, online, on TV and many other places.
