Music Licensing Company Message Suite Standard (formerly Producers' Collecting Society Message Suite Standard)
The governance of this message suite (which allows the efficient transfer of repertoire information between Music Licensing Companies) has been transferred to Digital Data Exchange LLC (DDEX). DDEX has the participation of several major Music Licensing Companies and is seen as the most appropriate home for a standard which relies for its efficiency on common data definitions with the rest of the music industry. These are documented in the DDEX data dictionary.
Information about the suite can now be found at http://www.ddex.net/communication-between-music-licensing-companies
IFPI remains the ISO appointed registration authority for the International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) and information can be found at http://www.ifpi.org/isrc
IFPI remains the registration authority for the Global Release Identifier (GRid) though discussions are under way about possible the transfer of this standard to DDEX. At present details are at http://www.ifpi.org/grid
