What is CWR?

CWR, that stands for "Common Works Registration", is a protocol and a data format for batch registration of Musical Works with collecting societies, also known as CMOs. This format is also increasingly used by Music Publishers for the transmission of Catalogs.
Reprtoir is compatible with the CWR 2.1 version which is the most used. This means that the part that will ingest the transmitted CWR file must also be compatible with this version.
