    Your ISRC Registrant Code is your unique part of the ISRC Code that you embed in your songs
    This page has info that might be helpful regarding Music Library assignments.
    https://www.usisrc.org/about/assignment_guidelines.html
    in particular

    2. An ISRC should remain with its recording for the life of the recording regardless of changes in ownership, licensing, territory or method of distribution. The rights may vary territory by territory but the ISRC remains the same.

    3. You should take particular care to ensure that you (i) never assign the same ISRC to two different recordings and (ii) never assign an ISRC to a recording that already has an ISRC issued.

    I think the Library has to be an ‘ISRC Manager’ for sound recordings or music video recordings owned by other parties, but don’t know how that works.
    Also, who is GS1 for UPC?

    Sorry for double posting :-/ I didn’t know it could take a while for some posts to appear after submitting to the thread..

    I don’t remember paying for my ISRC Code and would like a UPC code but I don’t think I need a whole setup like I saw at STEM. It’s just me and no music submitted to any libraries yet, but songs posted online in several places. What do the Acronyms AS and GS1 stand for?

    Too many posts, or anything that looks odd to my spam tools, sends the post to the moderation queue. Repeating the same post will surely send it to moderation.

    AS = Audiosparx.

    FWIW- you can change the ISRC assigned by AS. It’s not possible by default, but if you email them they will enable the capability. So if you already have an ISRC assigned to a recording, or if one becomes assigned later you can avoid having two different codes for a single recording.

    <The problem with that is that if a library releases your track on a compilation album, theoretically, you can’t release it again, AFAIK. That’s why I don’t let anyone release for me.>

    Art, so does this mean that you don’t have your AS songs streaming on RadioSparx or their other platforms? What do you mean by “you can’t release it again”?

    I have them on RadioSparx as I don’t believe there is an issue there but not for digital release. As for “can’t release again”, I was just speculating. I have released some again with new ISRC codes. Don’t what the impact of that is. I noticed the older ones that were released by AS are designated “Original Mix” on the playlists they are in on Spotify.

    Murky stuff!

    So the ISRC (and UPC) only relate to sales (physical or digital) but not streaming?

    For some reason I assumed AS was giving me ISRC codes for purposes of the DSP sites….

    I have a huge catalog of songs I recorded with artists before streaming was evening around. Can I repackage those songs and release as a Greatest Hits? Or do I have to get permission from the labels? Also does SE and HFA collect those streaming royalties on artists I’ve produced on major labels? I own most of my copyrights except when I wrote with writers. In those cases do I have to list each writer and their split on the SE spreadsheet? Thanks!

    Most likely you would need permission unless you own the masters.

    I believe so but check with Soundexchange.
