Version 1.4 of the MLC standard has a clearer separation between the different types of contributors and artists that played a role in the creation of sound recordings and/or music videos. The DeclarationOfSoundRecordingRightsClaimMessagenow separates out:

  • DisplayArtist– a  – A composite containing details of a main or principal credited artist;
  • DisplayConductor– a  – A composite containing details of a credited conductor
  • DisplayComposer– a  – A composite containing details of a credited composer
  • DisplayArtistName – the string used when presenting the DisplayArtist (or the DisplayArtists) to consumers;
  • PerformingContributor – A composite containing details of a performing contributor to a sound recording or music video that contributed something deemed to be a “performance”;OtherContributor– a contributor to a sound recording or music video that contributed something other than a “performance”. This the SoundRecording, as defined in the International Treaties. While there is a semantic difference between a performing and a non-performing contributor, some MLCs may classify a specific contribution as one while other MLCs may classify the same contribution as the other. Therefore, it is necessary to carry some of the attributes specific to performances (esp. the flags) on both composites while in theory they make no sense for non-performing contributions.
  • OtherContributor – A Composite containing details of a contributor that is not a performing Contributor to the SoundRecording, according to the International Treaties. While there is a semantic difference between a performing and a non-performing contributor, some MLCs may classify a specific contribution as one while other MLCs may classify the same contribution as the other. Therefore, it is necessary to carry some of the attributes specific to performances (esp. the flags) on both composites while in theory they make no sense for non-performing contributions. This includes studio personnel as well as writers.
