CDSA anti piracy and MCPS

Key Production fully supports the Anti Piracy Compliance Program (APCP), which has been developed by the Content Delivery and Storage Association (CDSA). The program specifies the most important procedures for piracy screening.

In practice, this means that Key Production performs extra checks on copyright information and logos on the label film and artwork, and it will require us to send a label copy and licensing documentation together with your parts and / or data to the CD plant. By licensing documentation it is meant that documentation indicating that full rights are obtained for producing the specific audio and / or information data.

The program is designed to protect the rights of the owner of the sound recording and / or content and therefore differs from the Mechanical Copyright Protection Society (MCPS) who protect the rights of the writer and publisher. Therefore a valid MCPS License or indication of no claim from MCPS is required, but is not proof that you have the right to manufacture the sound recording or data.

For all new orders sent to us for manufacture we now need the following-

OWNED REPERTOIRE
  1. Purchase Order
  2. Track listing / label copy with artist and song title or data.
  3. Covering letter on headed paper saying artist is signed to your record label.
  4. If possible, a web address displaying details of your label and the artists.
LICENSED PRODUCT
  1. Purchase Order
  2. Track listing / label copy with artist and song title or data.
  3. First page of license displaying whom the license is between, valid dates, schedule of the licence showing which tracks or data are licensed and signatures.
UNSIGNED ARTIST
  1. Purchase Order
  2. Track listing with artist and song title.
  3. Letter explaining that the songs are yours and that you are releasing them yourself.
  4. If possible, a web address displaying details of you and your songs.
  5. Other proof (not MCPS) that you have the rights to manufacture the CDs.
CD ROM / ENHANCED CD
  1. Purchase Order
  2. List identifying Content (and track listing if enhanced CD) or letter indicating you are the intellectual copyright owner.
