How is a report structured?

Usage and/or revenues are reported using the following way:

Each block contains all information pertaining to a sold/used release and needed for sales/usage processing: documentation data (release data, list of resources that are part of the release) and sales/usage data.

“Cue” lines related to a single resource include details of creations used in the video resource (pre-existent image, musical work, audio-visual work, other…).

The “sub release” line enables to avoid the repetition of the same data when just part of the described release is sold (e.g.: a single resource in a release …).

The sales line relates to a release or a sub release and provide sales/usage information pertaining to a single context (e.g.: sales related to a specific commercial offer in a specific territory).
