    I’m submitting songs to a library that requires that they be registered with my PRO prior to submission.

    I curious about titles- some composers use different titles on different libraries to cut down on comparison shopping and I thought I’d do the same. My internal titles are numeric (year+ID number) which, obviously, won’t work on music libraries.

    How do y’all handle titles? Do you submit multiple alternate titles to your PRO?

    Thanks for any clarity you can cast on this one.

    I use to do that but not anymore. Didn’t think it was worth the effort.

    I have tracks submitted to a few non-ex libraries and I’m about to start submitting to a new one. The new library appears to contain tracks that are titled descriptively, whereas the tracks I’ll be uploading have more fanciful titles. Do most people think it’s OK to just change their names? Do I have to submit these alternate titles to my PRO?

    I would submit them to my pro as alternative names.

    As ORPM said. Submit to your PRO as alternate title to original title.

    Also, if you have a lot of alternate titles and you are with BMI you can upload with a spreadsheet.
