Does SESAC Collect Mechanical Royalties?

No - SESAC is a Performance Rights Organization (PRO).

No! Mechanical royalties due from streams, downloads, and physical sales are not collected by Performance Rights Organizations (PROs), such as SESAC. 100% of all mechanical royalties must be collected by a publisher.

As your publishing administrator, Songtrust will register your songs with mechanical rights societies and digital sources globally to collect these royalties and pay them out to you.
