6.19.3 Granting additional territorial clearances

This life cycle update applies when a record company or distributor wishes to extend the rights granted to the DSP on an existing release or set of releases to cover additional territories:

  1. The record company or distributor must provide a deal for the additional territories starting on the date the grant should be applied. The DSP should apply the grant and make the content available in the new territories set out in the message on the start date provided; and

  2. The territories covered by the deals in the previous NewReleaseMessages must also be included in the update NewReleaseMessage, with an active validity period, as this original deal is already applicable.
