Music Business/Law Tips - "ISRC Codes"

ISRC stands for International Standard Recording Code, and is like a bar code for recorded music that identifies songs and videos worldwide sold in the digital realm, and helps tracks digital sales/royalties. It is required to have an ISRC code to sell on iTunes and to chart in Billboard. Each song on an album (or each single) has to have its own ISRC code. You can get ISRC codes here: (the current cost is $32/song). Don’t forget you still need a separate bar code to sell a physical CD. Ben McLane Esq

  1. Good news Ben!

    ISRC Codes on our site are actually cheaper than $32 each.

    They are $2 each (plus a fixed $30 setup fee). So, 10, for example would be $50 and not $320.

    Hope this clarification helps!
