A performance rights society created in 1914. ASCAP is a nonprofit unincorporated association owned by writers and music publishers which has a Board of Directors made up entirely of writers and music publishers (12 writers and 12 publishers) elected every two years by their membership. Members include over 100,000 active composer, songwriter, lyricist and music publisher members.

To be eligible to become a member, one must have at least one song published and distributed, or commercially recorded, or available for rental purposes, or performed (or likely to be performed) within the scope of the association's licensing domain.

Writers and publishers sign identical contracts and may resign at the end of any year on three months' advance written notice.

ASCAP is an agent representative for its members (music publishers, composers, songwriters, and lyricists) which issues nonexclusive use licenses (called performance licenses) to users of music (e.g., radio stations, network television, MTV, HBO, cable networks, stadiums, arenas, concert halls, nightclubs, hotels, ballrooms, dance studios, exercise studios, restaurants, casinos, malls, skating rinks, in flight entertainment, and other commercial users of background music) for the non-dramatic public performance of the copyrighted works of such members.

Performance licenses are granted to music users on a "blanket" basis, or on a "per program" basis (e.g., for single concert performances which are issued to the promoters or producers renting the concert facility).
