How RDx works

RDx is a data exchange hub which allows multiple record companies to deliver data about their recordings and rights to multiple Music Licensing Companies (MLCs).

RDx also returns to the record companies details of the registration status of their recordings and any claims conflicts that arise.

(1) The RDx system receives data from record companies, or their appointed data delivery partners, and forwards this data on to all the MLCs around the world that subscribe to the service (3).

(2) Both the RDx service and the receiving MLCs will inspect the data to check data quality and identify where any conflicting views of rights ownership arise.

(4) and (5) Messages are then automatically generated and sent back to the relevant record companies, advising them of any cases where the data they have provided is in conflict with that provided by another record company.
