This life cycle update applies when a message sender wishes to reduce the rights granted to the message recipient. This includes “global take-downs”, “territorial take-downs” and the cancellation of a RightsClaim:

To signal that a Release needs to be taken down it is sufficient for the Release Creator to send a new NewReleaseMessage for that Release, albeit, with no Deal composite. If wanted, the Release Creator may communicate a Deal with an EndDate set in the past.

To signal that some deals for a Release cease to apply (i.e. a reduction in the rights available), the Deal(s) that have ceased to exist may simply be omitted from the new NewReleaseMessage. If  If wanted, the Release Creator may communicate the ceased Deal(s) with an EndDate set in the past.

 

If  If a take-down or reduction in rights happens in the future, an appropriately end-dated Deal needs to be sent.

 

  1. In the case where a reduction of rights (i.e. the terms for commercial availability of a Release) is communicated prior to the date the reduction of rights comes into effect:
    1. The message sender shall repeat the set of Deals currently available to the message recipient, albeit with the EndDate set to the last day when these rights are available to the message recipient;

    2. Any rights that are to remain available to the message recipient shall be communicated in the same message; and

    3. Any subsequent messages shall only communicate Deals for those rights that are (or are to become) active.

      Info

      Cancelling a RightsClaim is typically done in case of a DSP having previously received two conflicting RightsClaims for the same Resource.

      In rare cases, RightsClaims are cancelled unilaterally by the Release Creator. In that case, the use of the DDEX Catalogue Transfer Choreography is encouraged in order to aid the DSP in determining the current rights owner (or controller) of the RightShare.

  2. In the case where the reduction of rights is communicated on or after the date the reduction of rights comes into effect:
    1. The message sender shall repeat the set of Deals currently available to the message recipient, albeit with the EndDate set to the day, or the preceding day to the day the message is sent. Any remaining rights shall be communicated in the same message;
    2. Any subsequent messages should only communicate Deals for those commercial aspects that are (or are to become) active as the absence of a Deal for a specific country is sufficient to indicate that the Release may not be made available in that country (any longer); and
    3. A message sender may, at its own discretion, repeat "take-down deals" as detailed in 2a above.

Example

Assume a Release that is already live with a start date in the past (e.g. since 1st February)  needs to be taken down immediately. Since deals start at the beginning of the Deal's StartDate (i.e. at 0:00:01) and end at the end of the Deal's EndDate (i.e. 23:59:59), the EndDate of the take-down deal should be yesterday so it is taken down immediately upon receipt.

The example below assumes that today is 2016-02-02.
