CD Baby shared the latest growth figures for its Pro music rights management subscription. It has increased more than 250% and represents more than 54,000 writers and administrators. The service helps members to collect mechanical royalties from streaming services worldwide. It also has direct registration of songs with more than 40 foreign societies to help with global rights management.
“We continue to help our members understand that performance royalties are only part of the equation with streaming services,” said Kevin Breuner, the company’s vice president of marketing. “Every little bit helps for today’s independent artists and it’s only going to increase from here.”
