Typical use for this block includes the reporting of
- Physical releases
- Bundle downloads
Each block for release based royalties is made of:
- One release record
- At least one resource record giving details about the resources included in that release for which royalties are being reported.
- One musical work record for each resource. The standard optionally allows this information to be combined with the resource record, if that is suitable
- A set of
- One sales/usage record providing sales details for that particular Musical Work
- One licensor usage data providing licensor specific sales details for that Musical Work for a set of parameters (i.e. territories, right types, usage types, etc…)
The licensor usage record is what represents the royaltie(s) for the work used.
