In the NewReleaseMessage it is possible to communicate a RightsClaimPolicy. Its structure has changed between different versions and users should be aware of these differences:

In version 3.7 and 3.7.1, a RightsClaimPolicy was comprised of one Condition composite and one RightsClaimPolicyType allowed value set. Both sub-elements were mandatory and had to be placed exactly once into the RightsClaimPolicy composite. The same structure was carried over into version 3.8 and its first update, version 3.8.1. 

However in version 3.8.1 a bug was detected in the RightsClaimPolicy which was corrected. As a consequence, the Condition composite is now optional and can be provided multiple times, allowing several Conditions (or none) to be linked to a single policy. The Condition also now allows the signalling of whether the baseline for the evaluation of the Condition is the ReferenceResoure or the ConsumerResource.
