What's a Performing Rights Organization (PRO)?

A Performing Rights Organization (PRO), also known as a performance rights society, collects royalties from businesses that host live performances and ensures songwriters and publishers are paid for the use of their music.

Performers or their management teams are required to provide a setlist of songs (both registered works and covers) and submit that data to the PRO in order to collect on the songwriter royalties. Muzooka automates that process by importing event data from our official ticketing partners.
