Rejected! The Most Common Errors

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Sixth Annual Metadata Summit is for experts, by experts — the program will amplify the importance of data, provide a high level forum for discussion, and attract key participants.

Style guide violations, audio language, missing explicit tags are just three of the many reasons that metadata errors lead to releases being rejected by DSPs. These errors lead to increased time and expense and possibly even missing a street date for an artist. This panel will address questions such as: What are the top reasons that releases are rejected by DSPs? What solutions are currently out there for cleaning up catalog data? Given the swift adoption of voice search, what new fields may cause a release to be rejected?

Metadata Summit Supporting Sponsors include DataArtprimephonicSOCANSoundExchange, and VEVA Sound
