With the launch of Songview, ASCAP and BMI are working together to make copyright data more accessible and transparent for all of our partners.

Songview is a new comprehensive data platform that provides music users with an authoritative view of public performance copyright ownership and administration shares for the vast majority of music licensed in the United States.

HOW IT WORKS
This innovative new system ingests song ownership information from ASCAP and BMI, processes and reconciles that information based on agreed-upon rules, and then sends the reconciled data back out to each PRO’s public searchable databases.

MORE DETAILED INFORMATION
With Songview technology integrated into our online search tools, ASCAP and BMI are able to seamlessly display detailed, aggregated performing rights data for more than 20 million musical works in our combined repertories, including a breakdown of shares by PRO, all in one place for the very first time.

MORE COMPLETE COPYRIGHT DATA
When you see the Songview checkmark next to a song, you know that the songwriters, publishers and ownership shares shown on the ASCAP and BMI websites are accurate, reliable and consistent between the two PROs.
