Through agreements with affiliated international societies, we also represent hundreds of thousands of music creators worldwide. We are the only US performing rights organization created and controlled by composers, songwriters and music publishers, with a Board of Directors elected by and from our membership. We protect the rights of ASCAP members by licensing and distributing royalties for the non-dramatic public performances of their copyrighted works.
