To find your Performing Rights Organization affiliation information, you will need to go to your organization’s website and search for your name in their repertory database in order to find your IPI/CAE number. An IPI/CAE number is a nine-digit international identification number assigned to songwriters and publishers to uniquely identify rights holders. You may see your IPI with two zeroes in front of it on your P.R.O.'s website. If this is the case, you can simply omit those zeroes when entering this number into our website. If you need help getting to the website of your Performing Rights Organization, you can find link to their website here.
