Managing Duplicate ISRC Codes
Catalogue Numbers & ISRCs should always be unique. They can not be assigned to more than one Release or Track in your catalogue on Curve. However, it may be that in the past certain Catalogue Numbers or ISRCs have been assigned more than once in your catalogue & that you receive reporting for different uses of these identical identifiers. The Duplicate Identifiers tool in your Settings allows you to tell Curve to which Release or Track a sale should be rerouted to in such case.
Imagine a scenario where we accidentally assigned the ISRC code GB7QY1700015 to both our track Help! and Here Comes The Sun. Naturally, we would experience issues when we receive a royalty statement. Curve uses the ISRC code as a reference to match the sale to the correct Track in your catalogue, so there would be a dilemma to which of the two possible matches Curve should match the royalty. For this reason, we require the ISRC code of a Track to be unique.
Give Your Tracks a Unique ISRC in Your Catalogue
Since ISRC codes are required to be unique on Curve, you will need to assign a new unique ISRC code to both Tracks in your Catalogue on Curve. Ideally you create an entirely new and unique ISRC code for each. Or you can add a suffix -A or -B to the ISRC codes of the two Tracks. The most important thing is that the ISRC codes are now unique.
