Metadata Requirements for Enabling the Online Recording Industry's New Business Models and Pricing Structures

Document Thumbnail

The recording industry has begun selling and distributing its media assets online. Online music distribution is vastly different from the normal means of physical distribution. These untested methods of music sales and distribution require experimentation in order to determine which business models and pricing tiers will most resonate with the consumer. This translates into the need for versatile and robust data models to enable these market trials. Copyright owners and media companies require well designed data structures to enable them to transmit and receive these complicated sets of business rules. This metadata is an essential part of an overall digital rights management system to control and limit access to the associated media assets.
