The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers has upgraded its user portal to allow writers and publishers to manage their cue sheet data. The portal lists all the music performed in a particular film or television show.

"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," said ASCAP CEO John A. LoFrumento.

ASCAP processes hundreds of thousands of cue sheets every year. Previously, composers, songwriters and publishers would have to request cue sheet data from production companies in order to verify their performances. ASCAP's new service eliminates this need.

Launched in October 2009, ASCAP 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.
