5.1.1 Direct Communication
The diagrams below depict the choreography defined by this standard.
It should be noted that a prerequisite for an efficient use of the messages in the standard requires that the (potential) Licensee identifies the Rights Controller(s) of the Right Share(s) in the Musical Work(s) it wishes to license. The most efficient way would be to use DDEX’s Musical Work Right Share Notification Choreography for this.
