Minimal Common Works Registration Tool

With this free CWR tool, you can create a simple Common Works Registration file.

Please note that only one author is required, so you do not need to fill all the fields. It actually takes 14 fields to make a complete minimal CWR.

Example of a minimal registration

John and Jane Doe have created The Work. The Publisher is representing John and not Jane. John collects 25% of perf. directly, other 25% and 50% for mech. and sync. rights are owned by The Publisher and administered worldwide by The Sender. No original publisher for Jane has been specified.

Depicted CWR file is available for download and can be examined in our Visual CWR Validator.

Limitations

Although this may seem like a lot of information, it is actually a very small subset of options that CWR provides, with many values pre-selected to most common ones. But please note that this may not be what you want.

Most importantly, the file will contain a registration for one new work. It can have up to three authors, but all controlled ones share the same original publisher, while for uncontrolled authors, original publisher is not set. The sender can also be an administrator but does not have to be.

Ownership of 50% of performing rights shares and 100% of mechanical and sync rights shares are transferred to the original publisher. They are collected for the World territory by the original publisher or administrator if you so choose.

Only 20 works (one at a time) can be registered by anonymous users.

Much more information is available in FAQ.
