Hi and welcome. The 'Performing rights' are the rights to perform a piece of music.. All the rights stay with the owner of the copy rights of the music..In other words.. The songwriter..
It's up to the songwriter, decide what happens with your piece of music/lyric. It's possible that you sign the royalties to a publisher. Then it will be his he who owns the right to the song..and it's his decision what happens with that song.
Some performing right organizations...
ASCAP, BMI: United States
PRS(Performing Rights Society) , MCPS: U.K.
Well, they protect your song on the first place When one of your songs is published, they make sure that the royalties from that piece of Music goes to the rightful owner(s)
Here I will give you the story of the performing right organization ASCAP, who has given me the permission to publish some information.. So , here we go...( This will give you a better Idea of what a performing rights organization is all about)

songwriters,lyricists,and music publishers of every kind of Music.
