The results of your search indicate authorship but may not necessarily indicate ownership of a work. You should not rely on search results as evidence of copyright in a work. Our database is generally current, however search results do not record publisher interests nor all disputes over ownership of works.
The results of your search will not include jingles, background music for films and television productions, and non-copyright (public domain) works.
Furthermore, if the work you searched for is not listed it does not necessarily mean that the work is not within APRA's repertoire. Through APRA's arrangements with affiliated overseas music copyright collecting societies, APRA's repertoire extends to musical works written by their members. Some of those overseas works, as well as unregistered local works, will not appear in your search results.
Local works - those written by APRA composers - are designated apra.
