This Profile of version 3.0 of the Flat File Variant has been developed in response to concerns regarding the file size and computational complexity of the XML Variant, and will lead to reduced implementation and running cost for Licensees and Licensors for user-generated content where the Message Sender either has, or has not, received a claim for a sound recording from the owner of that sound recording (the “master” Recording).
Any organisation wishing to implement this (or any other DDEX standard) is required to apply for an Implementation Licence. The terms of the licence and an application form can be found on https://ddex.net/implementation/implementation-licence-and-ddex-party-identifiers.
