Works Licensing

These are the DDEX standards that are relevant to Works Licensing. Each standard is presented in more than one version, which reflects the development of the standards as new business models and requirements have been identified. You are advised to either use the most recent version of each relevant standard or agree which version is to be implemented with your business partners. DDEX has developed one message suite standard and one choreography standard which support Works licensing.
