I'd like to teach the world to sing...
Our music is the world’s music.
In 1919, ASCAP signed our first agreement with a foreign performing rights organization (PRO). Today we have reciprocal agreements with more than 80 PROs around the world. We are proud to work closely with our global partners to ensure that music creators and publishers get paid, wherever their music is heard.
How we collect international royalties
When ASCAP music gets played overseas, our international sister societies monitor the performances and send the royalties to ASCAP. Then we distribute them to our members in our quarterly international distributions.
Our international advantage
From our involvement in international music organizations to the innovative programs we’ve developed to make international royalty tracking more efficient, ASCAP is a global leader in music rights.
Representamos a los mas grandes creadores de música en todo el mundo Latino.
ASCAP's commitment to the next generation of songwriters and composers deeply impressed me and was a major factor in bringing them on board with my team. We have such a responsibility to nurture young musicians and I am committed to this challenge in every aspect of my engagement with the art form.— Gustavo Dudamel
