SXWorks, the music publisher services arm of SoundExchange, aims to maximize the value of music for all creators of musical works wherever their work is used.
The first SXWorks initiative was the acquisition of the Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights Agency (CMRRA). CMRRA licenses the reproduction right across all areas of exploitation for music publishers and distributes royalties. CMRRA represents more than 85% of the Canadian market for music publishing mechanical rights.
SXWorks will bring services to market including:
- Mechanical licensing and royalty distribution
- Revenue assurance
- Direct license administration
- Data integrity support
- Online music licensing
- Private copying
- Broadcast mechanical licensing
