What is a Performing Rights Organization and Why Independent Musicians Should Join One

Whenever your song is played on the radio or TV, streamed online, or performed live, you are owed performance royalties. These royalties are paid as license fees to a Performance Rights Organization (PRO), which then distributes the payments to its member songwriters, composers, and publishers. If you are actively involved in releasing music to the public, you are eligible to join these organizations. Joining one of these PRO's in today's music environment is so simple that it almost doesn't make sense to join one.
