Membership

Membership of DDEX is open to any organisation with a business interest in digital media content. Becoming a member of DDEX means you are shaping the digital future. Although anyone can implement the standards, becoming a member of the DDEX consortium allows organisations to participate in and influence the development of future international standards in the digital supply chain. There are four categories of membership: Charter, Full, Full (Individual) and Associate.

Charter Members

Charter Members are entitled to:

  • Elect or appoint a named individual as a Director to the Board
  • Send one or more individuals to attend any of the technical Working Groups and have access to all documentation and communications relating to those meetings

Full Member fees are based on revenue bands, where revenue is defined as the income received for the last full financial year ending before the date of the Full Member joining DDEX for the first time or renewing its membership, which are finalized and available, that is in any way attributed to the exploitation of or the provision of services relating to any type of media content and/or any rights associated with media content.

The annual fees for Full Members (effective from 1st January 2017) are as follows:

Revenue Full Member Fee
$500m+ $12,850
$100m – $500m $10,300
$50m – $100m $8,200
$25m – $50m $6,550

Full (Individual) Members are generally “sole-traders” who may have several clients with an interest in DDEX and its standards. Whilst these individuals may be associated with a limited company, the individual would be the only employee.
