As every musical work requires at least one writer, this makes
Writer views to be a very important one.
change views have three field groups.
Last name and
first name fields in the first,
IPI name #,
IPI Base # and
Performance Rights Society in the second, all quite obvious.
In the third, we have three fields:
General agreementcheckbox to mark that there is an original general agreement with this writer. This means that this writer must be controlled in all works.
Society-assigned agreement numberfor the original general agreement between you and this writer (required in some societies)
Publisher feeis the fee kept by the publisher when royalties are paid and distributed. This field is not used in registrations. It is used only for royalty statement processing. Most small publishers don’t use it.
Writer list view filters and most of the columns in the table are self-explanatory.
Can be controlled may not be. There is a minimal set of data for controlled writers. This field shows if provided data fulfills the criteria.
The last column is a counter and link to the list of works by this writer.
