The scope of data used within the collective management of related rights is very specific, and is generally the subject –  at least indirectly –  of national legislation under which MLCs operate.

DDEX’s Electronic Release Notification (ERN) Standard that is used in the context of download stores and streaming services etc. is concerned with exclusive rights and commercial deals, and it may contain album art. By contrast MLCs are concerned with a different set of usage types: they need data about rights holders, they require the data which demonstrates eligibility and they have no concern with album artworks[1].
