Register your works!
In order to distribute the collected funds (royalty statements) it is essential that members register their works.
Based on the registered works of authors and/or music publishers the beneficiaries of a work (the composers, text authors, arrangers, publishers) are entered into the works database. The works database can also be used to find the copyright holders of works, eg for an arrangement of a work. The database also includes accounting information like split of royalties and works classification.
