What If I'm Not Affiliated With a Performing Rights Organization (PRO)?

You'll need to apply with the PRO directly before using Songtrust.

In order to work with Songtrust you must be a member of a PRO or CMO. If you are not currently a member of a PRO or CMO, you will need to apply directly on the collection society’s website. To help make this process as seamless as possible, we have created a Collection Society Database that includes the PROs or CMOs in each country and territory with their corresponding information.

Please note that Songtrust is not directly associated with every society around the world. Should you choose to affiliate with a society that we are not associated with, this means that we are unable to register your works or collect royalties on your behalf from this specific society directly - you will need to do so independently of Songtrust. However, we can register and collect any royalties you earn in the territories it is earning in that we are operational with. For a list of our direct relationships, click here.
