Society Compatibility

This page describes the compatibility between DMP and collective management organisations (CMOs), usually called societies.

The societies (CMOs) are grouped in four groups, ranging from verified compatibility, through probable and possible to verified incompatibility. We have provided additional information for some societies. For societies not listed, we simply have no information.

Note that only societies listed in the first two tables are available in the pre-installation wizard.

Verified compatibility

The compatibility with societies listed here has been verified. Complex CWR files, made in Django Music Publisher, were accepted by them. Acknowledgement files created by them were successfully imported into Django Music Publisher.

United Kingdom PRS Multiple users, no issues reported.
United States ASCAP Multiple users, no issues reported.

United States SESAC Same as HFA.

Probable or partial compatibility

The compatibility with these societies is either presumed, based on compatibility with our other tools and services, or partial, meaning that basic registrations work, but some edge cases do not. Please let us know if you have successfully used Django Music Publisher with these societies.
