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 music licensing companies 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].

title"RDR" is the new name for the "MLC" Standards.

In order to remunerate non-local right-holders, music licensing companies need to exchange usage data and revenues with each other. The DDEX data feeds that power online music services do not cover the needs of the collective management sector. DDEX provides the RDR Message Suite Standards to cover these specific needs.
