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.

Some DSPs may be accepting CWR files, but we have no information about compatibility with any of them.

Note that only societies listed in the first two tables are available in the pre-installation wizard. Also, only usual combinations of performance and mechanical rights organisations are supported.

Verified compatibility

The compatibility with societies listed here has been verified, a CWR registration was accepted by them and an acknowledgement file imported into DMP.
