Record companies sometimes wish that a DSP makes available a Release under terms and conditions that may change over time. For example, the recommended retail price may change before, during, or after a specific event (Christmas,  a sport event, etc).

In that case the DealList section needs to contain several deals that follow each other without gap, i.e. as soon as one deal ends the other deal starts. This can be effected with both dates and date-times as follows

If two subsequent Periods form a continuum (i.e. with no break in-between) there are two ways to express this:

  • if using dates, the EndDate of the first Period must be one day before the StartDate of the second Period; and
  • if using date times, the EndDateTime of the first Period must be the same as the StartDateTime of the second Period.

 

In both examples the price of the Release increase from 500 Islandic Kronur to 100 Islandic Kronur at midnight between 31st January and 1st February 2018:
