In this article, we will clarify what an IPI number is and where you can find yours.

What is an IPI Number?
An IPI (Interested Party Information) number is an international identification number used to identify songwriters and publishers as rights holders.

This number is usually anywhere between 9-11 digits long and is assigned to you by your PRO (Performing Right Organization). You will need to provide your IPI number when you begin publishing through our BeatStars platform so that we can properly manage your publishing. IPI is sometimes referred to as a CAE number. 

Please note that an IPI number is a separate code from the member ID number or the
account number assigned by a PRO.

IMPORTANT NOTE: BeatStars has partnered with IMRO to provide new BeatStars Publishing members with an IPI number for free. If you do not have a PRO or an IPI number, please sign up with IMRO when you are filling out your Publishing application. 

How can I find my IPI Number?
You can find your IPI number by either logging into your online PRO account, contacting
your PRO by phone and/or email, or by searching the public repertoire on the
website of your PRO. When searching your name in the public repertoire your unique IPI
number will appear next to it.
