Each [[Artist]] in [[MusicBrainz]] has a unique ArtistID, which is an absolute [http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc3986.txt URI]. It has the form <code><nowiki>http://musicbrainz.org/artist/UUID</nowiki></code>, where <code><nowiki>UUID</nowiki></code> is a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UUID Universally Unique Identifier] in its 36 character ASCII representation. In situations where the context is clear (such as file tags), just the <code><nowiki>UUID</nowiki></code> part can be used, leaving a ''relative URI''.
The ArtistID <code><nowiki>http://musicbrainz.org/artist/72c536dc-7137-4477-a521-567eeb840fa8</nowiki></code> is a unique identifier for the artist [[Artist:72c536dc-7137-4477-a521-567eeb840fa8|Bob Dylan]]. <code><nowiki>72c536dc-7137-4477-a521-567eeb840fa8</nowiki></code> is a relative URI for this artist.
