6 ISAN Business Model ISAN business model based on ISAN allocations by Producers ISAN RA pay a membership fee to ISAN-IA + ISAN registration fee (based on quantity) ISAN RA invoices a Service Fee for the issuance of the ISAN Identifiers. One off fee: ISAN issuance costs + perpetual maintenance of the data in the ISAN Registry. ISAN cannot be resold once allocated by the Producer ISAN are used, stored, circulated for free (and freely) by anyone. ISAN Registrant (6500+) are producers of all size : 3 pricing offers to cover all situations: Small registrants can buy unitary ISAN identifiers (typical: 9 ISAN / 2 V-ISAN) Medium registrant get volume discount (typical: >25% or pack 5000 ISAN) Flat rate for large commercial catalogues: studios, broadcasters,... (typical: 35k / year) ISAN version registrations (other than producers) remain marginal. Access to the ISAN Registry for ISAN Search and ISAN Resolutions is free. ISAN-IA is working on a FREE ISAN registration service for non commercial content (organizations need only to setup and operate the ISAN registrations) 6

7 7 Means to Access the ISAN Registry WWW API Files (Bulk) ISAN Registry Accessible 24x7 Operational since 2005 (99,9% up time) Scalable & Redundant technologies ISAN Allocation (ISAN Registry ONLY) Work / Version Search (ISAN Registry or Local Copy) ISAN Resolution ISAN Registry or Local Copy) User Copy Scheduled Updates

8 ISAN Registry Search and Resolutions Discovery Reader: Free discovery public ISAN Search and ISAN Resolution service is available on (does not require to be registered in the ISAN System via an ISAN RA). Limited set of metadata (work type, 3 titles, year, length, 1 director, 1 actor, V-ISAN) Registered Reader: Full access to the ISAN Registry, requires to be registered in the ISAN System via an ISAN RA. Web based ISAN Search and ISAN Resolution are free (some RA may charge a small admin fee). Promoter Readers: organizations who need to perform automated ISAN Search and ISAN Resolution: via a local copy of the ISAN Registry using the ISAN API via the automated ISAN bulk matching to retrieve large quantities of existing ISAN. Promoter readers with particular requirements / commercial applications can be asked to contribute to the service delivery (10k/year) 8

Improving the monetization of archived content and management of rights (discovery, suggestions, circulation…). Improving the identification and management of all versions of a content (film print original/restored, tapes, discs, digitized versions, …) Reducing the cost of rights clearance while increasing the chance to identify rights holders ISAN referenced in many right holders databases (CMOs: producers, authors, music, performers, etc…) Producers register their work with ISAN to prevent them from becoming future Orphan Works.
