In the United States, ASCAP (http://www.ascap.com/) and BMI (http://www.bmi.com) are the main performing rights organizations. They collect license fees for songwriters, music publishers and composers.

In order to receive potential license fees for your work, you have to become a member of one of these organizations. For some people, these organizations help a great deal, for some other people they may not be appealing.

More information about these organizations is readily available around the web and their respective websites.
