The Work List search screen provides you with the ability to search CMRRA’s musical works repertoire.
The following search parameters are supported:
Work Title (Original or Alternate)- The original title or any alternate title. The search type can be set to “Exact Match,” “Begins With,” or “Fuzzy”, where a “Fuzzy” search is a non-exact text search and will yield results based upon similarity in descending order. Please note that non-exact searches, including the “Begins With” option, will result in longer search processing times than exact matches.
Work Number – The following number types:
- CMRRA Number – CMRRA’s proprietary numeric work identifier
- SODRAC Number – SODRAC’s proprietary numeric work identifier
- ISWC – The ISWC (International Standard Musical Work Code) is a unique, permanent and internationally recognized reference number for the identification of musical works.
- WID – The WID number is unique identifier for works in the Music Works Information Database
Performing Artist Name- The name of the recording artist(s) associated with the work
Author/Composer/Publisher Name – The lyricist, composer and/or publisher contributors on the work. For publishers, this can be either the publisher name previously registered with CMRRA or the Interested Party (IP) Name Patronym. If searching for a writer, please search by the Last Name followed by First Name with no commas. Including the writer’s middle name will enhance the search, but if this information is not known, your best option will be using “Begins With” as the search type.
CAE/IPI Number – The rightsholder’s IPI Interested Party (IP) identifier, if known. This is a 9 digit number assigned to all members of Performing Rights Organizations (PROs).
