For digital retailers (DSP's), DDEX has developed standards for the receipt of releases and products from record companies, standards for sending sales and usage reports to record companies, societies and publishers, and standards for licensing musical works from publishers or music rights societies.
Intermediaries can be specialists in one or more transaction process and have developed to meet the needs of the growing digital supply chain. DDEX has developed standards to assist intermediaries with the exchange of information between record companies, digital retailers, music publishers and collecting societies. They can be used for any role the intermediary is fulfilling within the supply chain.
