DDEX Whitepaper: Music in Podcasts

“DDEX is a standard-setting organisation focusing on the data exchange requirements of the music industry. As such DDEX has started to consider the data and communication requirements to support the processes of obtaining licences for music used in podcasts and the subsequent reporting of the use of such music. While DDEX has a number of companies amongst its membership that are part of the podcast value chain, it recognises that the podcasts industry is much bigger than just music. Therefore, DDEX needs to take into consideration the requirements of the entire podcast value chain in order to validate any data and communication requirements when defining how to support the processes associated with the use of music in podcasts. This white paper documents possible data and communication processes for the various business transactions associated with the use of music in podcasts. The content of this white paper has been discussed both within DDEX as well as with companies that are operating in the podcast value chain. As a consequence of this process, DDEX is confident that this white paper accurately describes the data and communication requirements of the podcast community1 as well as those from the music industry.”
