I'd like to teach the world to sing...

Our music is the world’s music.

In 1919, ASCAP signed our first agreement with a foreign performing rights organization (PRO). Today we have reciprocal agreements with more than 80 PROs around the world. We are proud to work closely with our global partners to ensure that music creators and publishers get paid, wherever their music is heard.
