In reality you will only need the UPC codes (assigned to the digital release) and ISRCs (assigned to each of the tracks individually).
Our distribution platform assigns (free of charge) ISRC and UPC codes (digital distribution barcode, more information here) to those who distribute their music in digital stores through our service. You just have to continue creating your disk, and when you get to the "UPC" or "ISRC" section, if you don't have them, you should simply check the box next to it that says "I don't have a UPC / ISRc code, assign one to this album ".
It should be noted that the UPC code used for physical distribution cannot be the same as that used for digital distribution, and vice versa.
Once the digital distribution order has been made with La Cupula Music, your album will be reviewed by our Quality Control. At the moment it is approved by said department, you will be able to enter your platform and you will find the codes that have been generated automatically. For more information about our Quality Control here.
ISRC codes are also valid for embedding in an album's master.
The legal deposit is a service that we offer and that you can hire here: http://www.lacupulamusic.com/?product=asignacion-deposito-legal
In order to distribute in physical stores, what is important to include on the back cover of the CD is:
- The barcode (UPC) more information here
- Legal deposit
- The copyright warning, such as: "All rights reserved by the owner of the work", including information related to Copyright: year and name of the right holder. In the case of a physical copy on CD with content licensed under Creative Commons, it must be expressly indicated and indicate the type of license that corresponds.
