What is the difference between ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC?

They are all PROs.

There isn’t much of a difference between ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC (other than size). They are all Performance Rights Organizations for the United States and they all collect the same performance royalties.

 

However, while ASCAP and BMI are open to everyone, SESAC is only available by invitation only. If you are interested in the specific details about each agency you can view our review of each here.
