Allowed Value


A shortened version of the DisplayTitle which may be used for devices that have limited display capability.


An alternative to a primary Title, e.g. a ReferenceTitle or a DisplayTitle.

For example: a song may become well known or 'also known as (a.k.a.)' by its first line or a line from its chorus: 'Don't Stop Me Now' performed by Queen may have an AlternativeTitle 'Having A Good Time' or, 'I will always love you' performed by Whitney Houston may have an AlternativeTitle of 'Theme from Bodyguard'.


A Title expressed by the RightsController as to how a Title should be displayed for presentation to the consumer.


A Title which consists of the first line of the text of which it is a Title.


A Title structured according to a naming convention. In many cases, a FormalTitle will be communicated together with a GroupingTitle.

For example: this is often used for classical works. The 1st movement of Vivaldi's Spring concerto may have a FormalTitle of 'Concerto No. 1 in E major, Op. 8, RV 269, 'Spring' (La primavera), 1. Allegro (in E major)'.


A Title given to a grouping of Creations. This is often used for classical works to indicate the parent work to the one being described. In many cases, a GroupingTitle will be communicated together with a FormalTitle.

For example: when describing the 1st movement of Vivaldi's Spring concerto, a suitable GroupingTitle would be its FormalTitle without the last part. 'Concerto No. 1 in E major, Op. 8, RV 269, 'Spring' (La primavera)'.


A Title by which a Creation is often incorrectly known.


A Title that contains common typographic errors.


A Title given to a Creation by its Creator(s), in its original language. A Creation may be given more than one OriginalTitle. The OriginalTitle of a Creation X may be the DisplayTitle of a Creation that X is based on.

For example: the OriginalTitle of the MusicalWork “My Way”, whose lyrics were written by Paul Anka, is 'Comme d'habitude' written and composed by Claude François.


A Title created to aid database searching.

For example: where special characters, puns, or slang have been replaced by standardized elements.


A Title which has been arranged such that it can be used for alphabetic sorting.


A Title of a Creation as part of another Creation.


A Title from which all initial articles and punctuation have been removed.


A translation into a different language of the value contained in an OriginalTitle element. This is not the same as the OriginalTitle of a translation of a Creation, though the two will often be represented by the same text string.

For example: the TranslatedTitle of “Le Nozze di Figaro” is “The Marriage Of Figaro”.


A Type of an Entity used when a sender of a DDEX message wishes to indicate that the value within the allowed value set is unknown.
