In 2012 CD Baby launched its Sync and YouTube platform that now represents over 2 million tracks and has paid out $4 million in incremental artist earnings. In 2013 CD Baby launched a publishing platform for independent songwriters, which now represents 250,000 compositions from 50,000 songwriters.
