home SESAC, Inc is a performing rights organization with headquarters in Nashville and offices in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami and London. Performing rights organizations (there are three of us in the U.S.) are businesses designed to represent songwriters and publishers and their right to be compensated for having their music performed in public. SESAC will represent the right for your music to be played in public. Songwriters and publishers are paid royalties based upon how much their songs are played. The system required to compute compensation is based on many factors, including state-of-the-art monitoring, computer database information and broadcast logs. Unlike ASCAP and BMI, SESAC utilizes a selective process when affiliating songwriters and publishers, resulting in a roster of affiliates who have personal relationships with the SESAC staff. In short, SESAC's creative staff provides affiliated songwriters and publishers with a level of service and attention unparalleled in the industry. SESAC's corporate headquarters in the heart of Nashville's Music Row houses all of the company's divisions, from creative to licensing to administration. The company also has offices in New York, London, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Miami.
