What Performance Rights Society do you think is better? ASCAP or BMI?

Of these two Music Industry giants,does one offer better advantages? Why did you choose one over the other or does it matter?

I started this group in the hopes of shedding light on the subject of Performance Rights Societies,specifically the big dogs,ASCAP and BMI. I think most musicians know the names,but many know very little about how these companies work,and what the actual benefits of being a member are. Does one offer a generally larger share of royalties than the other? How helpful are these companies? Does one company offer more service or is one less expensive to be a member of? Does one "go to bat" more enthusiastically for it's members than the other? Is one more flexible and/or does one offer more features that a member can take advantage of? Is there anyone who has switched from one to the other,and why? Has anyone had a good or bad experience they would like to share with us? I would also like to hear about small,independant companies of this type. Can they even come close to offering an artist what ASCAP or BMI can,and are they even worth considering?

Hello all we are back to start rockin' the blues again. Presently we are a three piece group and are working on new material. Hopefully we can get in the studio to record it in the next few months...

I enjoy ASCAP so far...I don't know too much about BMI...and upon researching both, I still found little info about BMI so I opted for the PRO with the right benefits, ASCAP.

Thanks for the comments Miklekri,
I studied the comments made here by experienced people on the subject,such as Billy Arr "The Word Weaver". I ended up choosing ASCAP. Reading all of this helped me tremendously. Thanks to all who have commented thus far!

p.s. Your typed English is not bad at all.

--"Of these two Music Industry giants,does one offer better advantages? Why did you choose one over the other or does it matter?"
---Due to the fact that I am not a resident of the U.S. I had to choose the filling of doc**ents to be sent by mail. And that ASCAP had better understood and less paper.

I have long compared two companies on the internet and found no difference. Although ASCAP chose, because I liked the system and more as a proposal to filling doc**entation. (sorry for my bad english)))

I do know of the Horror stories of ASCAP back in the day. But these days I'm not sure who's looking out for your best interest.-Peace-Bish

Ref: Dan Goodman comment. Dan, BMI is NOT a publisher. You cannot "Publish" your music thru them. They WILL collect royalties for you as a writer for a publishing company , or collect royalties for your publishing company, but they are a performance rights organization, NOT a publisher. There's a big difference between the two. Billy Arr

ASCAP was there for me when I had nothing they are AMAZING and truly care. BMI may be great as well but I will always be loyal to ASCAP
