Do you collect royalties from songs already registered with ASCAP/BMI/SESAC/SOCAN/etc.?

Yes, but only the publisher's share. (Performance royalties are divided in half between the publisher's share and the writer's share). Songtrust will collect the publisher's share on your behalf, and your writer's share will continue to be paid directly to you by your PRO.

Please note that we receive the publisher's share payment for each quarter at the same time you receive the writer's share. We will then process that payment and pay it out to you the FOLLOWING quarter, meaning we are always one quarter behind your PRO. If you're seeing payments that don't add up, it's likely because you will receive the corresponding publisher's share from us in the following quarter.

When you join Songtrust, you're able to transfer your ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, or SOCAN catalog to your Songtrust agreement at no additional charge.

Note: We can administer as much or as little of your existing catalog as you wish. You will designate this in your digital Letter of Direction when you sign up.
