Barcodes, ISRC codes & IP Rights

BARCODES

Barcodes and ISRC codes are optional for any replication or duplication order, but we do recommend them to identify your product.
 
If you already have digital distribution for a CD Audio album, chances are that the digital distributor will have already assigned a barcode to the album and ISRC codes to the tracks. (Use Google to find a barcode image generator and incorporate that image into your artwork.) If you're not sure which digital aggregator to use, but would like to talk to someone local, we have an option here for you via Ditto Music: Replicat Digital Start
 
If you'd like Replicat to provide a barcode and barcode image for your product, just request this when you submit your order form (currently $25+GST). We'll assign a unique Replicat barcode number and email you back a barcode image. Pass this on to your designer to incorporate into your artwork and your mastering engineer to include on your album (or Replicat can do this - check with us for finishing service rates).
 
 

 

ISRC CODES

If you need ISRC codes, please send an email to the governing body ARIA to have them issued for free: [email protected] 
 
 
 

AMCOS & APRA

 
If you are recording a song not of your own composition, you are required to obtain a clearance from AMCOS before we can replicate CDs.
 
This approval must be in writing. It should be noted that AMCOS can take up to 8 weeks to provide a licence approval and no sales should take place before receiving this licensed approval. AMCOS will explain the issues of copyright and royalties which need to be paid by you. For original compositions we recommend you protect your proprietary interest by also registering with AMCOS.
