In some cases a Release may become corrupt over time. This may make it complicated for a Release Creator to ask for such a Release to be removed (or "purged") from a Release Distributor's database.

In order for a Release to be removed, the Release Creator shall send a PurgeReleaseMessage and the Release Distributor shall act by ceasing to make this Release available if it can ascertain that the message sender has the rights to ask for a Release to be purged. This may be done by checking that the Release Distributor has received the active Deal(s) from the same message sender.

The same approach may also be used when a Release Creator wants to permanently remove a Release from the catalogue of a Release Distributor.
