Do You Need a Universal Product Code (UPC) for My Songs?

No - Songtrust does not need any of your UPC codes.

Universal Product Codes are mainly used for purchases, and not used to assist in locating and collecting your music publishing royalties.

The Universal Product Code (UPC) is a specific type of barcode widely used for tracking products in stores. Its most common form, the UPC-A, consists of 12 numerical digits, which are uniquely assigned to each product.

Songtrust tracks your music via the International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) assigned to your recordings, not UPCs. 

Below is an example of a UPC code:
