These standards are highly inter-compatible and share a common ontology/data dictionary. Additional processes are currently being developed, and once this work has concluded, the DDEX Knowledge Base will be updated.

Exchanging Claims in Share(s) of Musical Works

DDEX has published standards and choreographies that cover a number of processes relating to making claims on, and the licensing of, musical-works.

The six "core" processes presently covered by the DDEX standards and choreographies are:

  1. A licensor wanting to notify a licensee of its claim(s) to musical-work(s)
  2. A licensee requesting information on a licensor's claim(s) to musical-work(s)
  3. A licensee wanting to augment the information it holds on musical-work(s)
  4. A licensee requesting license(s) for usage(s) of musical-work(s)
  5. Maintaining the licensor/payee information in the a "Letters of Direction" process.
  6. Notification and resolution of “duplicate-claims” on musical-work(s)

The standards are highly inter-compatible and share a common ontology.

Additional processes are being developed. Once this work has concluded, the licensing section of the DDEX Knowledge Base will be updated.
