At the moment, self-released publishers are not qualified to affiliate with HFA but it can change soon as I was told directly by HFA, so your commercially distributed record has to be with a label or publisher other than your own, if I am not mistaken, but you can have a non-represented account for licensing opportunities, does this apply to song trust as well?


Hi - Publishers don't have to join HFA to collect. Sign up to register the compositions you control at harryfox.com/pubonlineaccount. There are many benefits to affiliating directly or via Songtrust, but it's not required to be eligible to collect for the digital music music services that HFA Slingshot administers.

To be a bit more precise - affiliate with Ascap or BMI to collect your songwriter/publisher performance royalties AND join SoundExchange to receive your digital streaming performance royalties for your music's sound recordings if you own the rights to the sound recording as a record label or you are the featured artist on the song.
