The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) is a membership association of more than 900,000 songwriters, composers, and music publishers, and represents some of the world’s most talented music creators.
Founded and governed by songwriters and composers, it is the only performing rights organization in the U.S. that operates as a not-for-profit.
ASCAP licenses a repertory of over 17 million musical works to hundreds of thousands of businesses that use music, including streaming services, cable television, radio and satellite radio, and brick and mortar businesses such as retail stores, hotels, clubs, restaurants, and bars.
ASCAP collects the licensing fees; identifies, matches, and processes trillions of performances every year; and returns nearly 90 cents of every dollar back to its members as royalties.
The ASCAP license offers an efficient solution for businesses to legally perform ASCAP music while respecting the right of songwriters and composers to be paid fairly.
ASCAP puts music creators first, advocating for their rights and the value of music on Capitol Hill, driving innovation that moves the industry forward, building community, and providing the resources and support that creators need to succeed in their careers.
