Professional legal advice should be sought whenever legal issues are a concern. Also consult your BMI, ASCAP or SESAC representative before purchasing a license.
Performing rights organizations (there are three of us in the U.S.) are businesses designed to represent songwriters and publishers and their right to be compensated for having their music performed in public.
Formed in 1939 as a non-profit-making performing right organization, BMI was the first to offer representation to songwriters of blues, country, jazz, r&b, gospel, folk, Latin and, ultimately, rock & roll.
