Barcodes. Member acknowledges that barcodes are provided at no charge for accounts holding small and medium-sized catalogues; however members with larger catalogues will be required to provide their own barcodes. 4e. ISRCs. LIMELIGHT MUSIC's role as your ISRC Manager Member acknowledges ISRCs can be provided free of charge for all accounts or Member can provide their own ISRCs; however, in the event that Member uses ISRCs provided by LIMELIGHT MUSIC, special rules and regulations apply as follows: LIMELIGHT MUSIC is a registered ISRC Manager recognized by IFPI, and is authorized to issue ISRCs on behalf of record labels and rights holders. IFPI regulates the use of ISRCs and the relationship between ISRC Managers and rights holders. For the purpose of adhering to these regulations, in the event that Member makes use of the free ISRCs provided by LIMELIGHT MUSIC, Member officially designates LIMELIGHT MUSIC to be the formally nominated ISRC Manager for that recording and the repertoire of content uploaded to Limelight Music, except in situations where Member provides their own ISRC. The assignment of ISRC's does not inherently transfer or infer any type of ownership of the recording for which the ISRC is assigned. The main use of an ISRC is to create a unique identifier that should adhere to a specific sound recording and which should follow the recording to all platforms and metadata descriptions for the purpose of identification across platforms.
Providing your own ISRCs If Member provides their own ISRC for a specific recording, it is assumed LIMELIGHT MUSIC is not acting as the ISRC Manager for that specific recording.
LIMELIGHT MUSIC ISRC's Definition: "Limelight Music ISRC" referred to in this document shall refer to the final ISRC code that is issued per recording that uses the Limelight Music registrant code "QZ-QGC". LIMELIGHT MUSIC's Registrant Code can be recognized by the first 5 characters in the following code: QZ-QGC-00-00000 When actual codes are issued to a recording, 0's shall be replaced in incremental fashion based on the year the ISRC is issued as well as the sequence in which the code is issued in relation to other codes that have been issued. Actual codes are usually automatically assigned by LIMELIGHT MUSIC as soon as the first DSP insert order is created for that recording. Examples: QZ-QGC-21-00001, QZ-QGC-21-00002, QZ-QGC-19-00001, QZ-QGC-19-00002; where the middle 2-digit number refers to the year the code was issued.
Exclusivity The purpose of this exclusivity clause is to follow IFPI regulations and to enforce identifiable uniqueness for a specific recording. This exclusivity agreement shall not prevent Member from continuing to use a LIMELIGHT MUSIC assigned ISRC free of charge should Member decide to no longer use LIMELIGHT MUSIC services. The general rule is that one ISRC per recording should be assigned across all albums, releases, products, services, and platforms. Definition: "Nominated repertoire" referred to in this document shall refer to content uploaded to LIMELIGHT MUSIC for which a LIMELIGHT MUSIC ISRC has been assigned; i.e. where Member did not assign their own ISRC during the first DSP insert order or delivery. Member agrees that for all recordings where LIMELIGHT MUSIC ISRCs are assigned, Member shall not appoint any other ISRC Manager to assign ISRCs to the Recording or other recordings in the nominated repertoire, and that Member will not assign new ISRCs to the nominated repertoire. 4f.
