What is a PRO?

A PRO (Performing Rights Organization) is a publishing organization responsible for collecting performance royalties on behalf of songwriters and music publishers. 

You will need to register with a PRO before using BeatStars Publishing. 

Below is a current list of some PROs for different countries. Please note that in order to collect royalties in the United States, if you are outside of the country, you will also need to be registered with a U.S. PRO like ASCAP or BMI, which can usually be done while registering with your country's PRO.

IMPORTANT:  We do not manage these services, as a result, the list could be subject to change and there may be others.  Please search your country's additional PRO options if needed.
