ASCAP Launches Online Cue Sheet Access

Film Music Magazine • June 18, 2010

ASCAP has become the first American PRO to offer members access to their cue sheets online, allowing members through the ASCAP online member area to see all cue sheets they are listed on.

In announcing the new service for members, ASCAP CEO John LoFrumento said: “As we prepare to celebrate ASCAP’s 25th Anniversary Film & Television Music Awards next week, we are pleased to launch this major enhancement to our Member Access service. We have added an innovative feature that will allow composers, songwriters and publishers instant access to their cue sheet data. America is the leading source of film and television production and ASCAP is the first American performing rights organization to offer this type of cue sheet benefit. It is another example of how we are leveraging technology to provide the best possible service to our members.”

Cue sheets will be displayed in Member Access through the “My Catalog” tab when there is at least one work with a member as an entitled party. Features of the new online cue sheet access include:

* Multiple search options by series, episodes, non-series, specific works, co-written works or a combination
* Sort options by non-series, series or episodes in a series
* Ability to navigate from cue sheet details to work details and back

Launched in October 2009, Member Access is a secure, online portal giving ASCAP’s songwriter, composer and music publisher members 24/7 access to their membership, catalog, performance and royalty information. Member Access allows ASCAP members to conduct their business with the performing rights organization from anywhere in the world. To date, over 50,000 ASCAP members have activated their accounts.
