2.1 Introduction

Version 1.0 of this standard provides a mechanism to communicate information about Musical Works, Recordings that make use of such Musical Works as well as Musical Work Right Shares. In that, this standard serves a similar purpose to the Musical Work Right Share Notification Choreography (MWN). MWN is, however, best-suited for the communication of detailed information on a comparatively small number of Musical Works in the context of Musical Work licensing. This standard is targeted at communicating, in a bulk feed, information on large sets of Musical Works.
