The Work List search will return a list of possible matches for your search in a results grid. You can click on the View option to review the details of the work and any associated licences.
Please note that the list of works returned will be limited to only those that have been previously registered with CMRRA and which have been validated and prepared for licensing and royalty payment. These works will reflect a Registration Status of “Registered.”
In addition, you will be able to view any works that you have submitted using the CMRRA Direct Work Registration tool, and which have not yet been fully processed. The status of these will be “In Process” until validated by CMRRA.
If a work has an identified conflict in ownership, it will be flagged with a status of In Dispute, visible in the header section of the work details.
