How do you find out if a song is registered?
First, locate the copyright notice either on a recording or on a copy of the sheet music. You can then search for the song title, writer, or publisher on CCLI, ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SongFile or at our web page, Music Services.

How can I tell if a song is copyrighted?
Public domain songs: The website PDInfo not only has information about copyright law; it also lists all the songs available in the public domain. Typically, these are songs composed or recorded in 1926 or before, as of January 2022.
Can you have both ASCAP and BMI?
If you played a song with an ASCAP streaming license and another song licensed with BMI, you’d have to pay both ASCAP licensing fees and BMI licensing fees. That means you must stay in close contact with the PRO you’ve partnered with.
Should I register my beats with BMI?
As soon as a song is published and/or recorded, it should be registered with and reported to BMI. BMI’s ability to license and monitor the performances of a composition is dependent upon the accuracy and timeliness of this reported information. Without it, you may miss out on royalties.
