I am AJ author from Ukraine.
Lately been interested in registering music in PRO.
I am wandering - are here authors/composers from Ukraine registering music in PROs?
Which PRO do You use? Are there any restrictions of using “foreign” PROs (like ASCAP, BMI, etc.)?
I have read the topic about registering music in PRO written by @redoctopus but didn’t quite understand the system of how the royalties go from PRO to the author.
IF the author is not from the country the PRO is situated/registered and wants to join that PRO (i.e. an author from Ukraine - me - joining ASCAP - PRO in US) - does that “foreign” PRO connects/collaborates with the authors “native” PRO? Or the country of residence of an author/composer has nothing to do with that?
And if there are some hidden things to know about using “foreign” PROs - I would really appreciate some experienced authors to join here and share the info. I think it will be really helpful not only for me .
