Interested Parties Information Code

Description

The Interested Parties Information Code (IPI) is an identifying number assigned in the CISAC database to each Interested Party in musical rights management.

In October 2001, the IPI database replaced the CAE database.

IPI numbers are attached to ISWC numbers, to allow CISAC to attach information such as author, composer, and arranger to ISWC registered works. IPI numbers can also be used at the websites of other work registration organizations, such as BMI to locate works in their databases.

MusicBrainz doesn't currently store IPIs but could do so for label listings.
