You need to do three things (all are necessary for your license to be valid):
- Before your new song is released commercially, you need to register it with Collective Management Organisations (CMOs) – to protect your new song and make sure everyone gets paid.
There are two types of CMOs and you need to register with both;
- E-mail the ISWC-code*, ISRC-code(s)*, Runtime* and the final Song Title of your new song to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Pay royalties as explained in the sample license agreement. Pay from the first $/€/£ made and email copies of royalty statements to email@example.com. Once you've reached the amount you paid to get the sample license, you will be credited or repaid that amount from Tracklib. After the credit/repayment, just continue paying royalties and account for them as usual.
*) ISWC = The International Standard Musical Work Code is a unique, permanent and internationally recognized reference number for the identification of musical works/compositions. You will get a unique ISWC code once you have registered your new song with a Publishing Rights Organisation. More info at http://www.iswc.org/
*) ISRC = The International Standard Recording Code is the international identification system for sound recordings and music video recordings. You will get a unique ISRC code when you release your new song – either from your label or from the distribution service you use. More info at http://isrc.ifpi.org/en/
*) Runtime = The length of your new song.
