CAE number

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In musical rights management, the CAE number was previously used to identify rights holders.[1] The acronym "CAE" was devised by the national society of Switzerland, SUISA, and consisted of the French words Compositeur, Auteur and Editeur, for Composer, Author and Publisher. A CAE number is 9 digits long.

It is being phased out and has been replaced by the IPI code.
