You don't have to be a Member of MCPS. Whenever you make a recording (for sale), you have to submit a track list (of copyright songs) to the MCPS, and the proposed quantity, and MCPS will determine the royalties due. Once you have paid, you are entitled to add the characters MCPS to your sleeve notes. (or directly printed on CD?)

If they are indeed on there, but they are CDR's, perhaps the MCPS should be informed. If you told the MCPS that you have made 100, but they find you have actually distributed say 10,000, they could take action as necessary to recover the extra royalties. (But they go to the copyright holder, not the artist)
