For catalogue counterclaims, if the Original Claimant wishes to maintain its claim, it will have 30 days to provide documentation to CMRRA to support such claim. Royalties will continue to flow to the Original Claimant during this 30-day period.
If the Original Claimant provides documentation to maintain its claim during this period, CMRRA will place the catalogue account in dispute status and all subsequent royalties will be held from distribution. CMRRA will not interpret documents and/or attempt to determine the correct owner/administrator for the disputed catalogue. The dispute must be resolved between the interested parties.
If, however, the Original Claimant does not provide documentation during the 30-day period, CMRRA will change its records in favour of the new claimant and royalties will be paid to the new claimant in our next distribution. If a claimant needs more time to obtain proper documentation to support their claim, please request an extension.
Please contact [email protected] for any catalogue level counterclaims.
