Data Calls

Various authors, IEEE-LTSC-DREL, Jun 10, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The IEEE Digital Rights Expression Language (DREL) Working Group "is gathering requirements that a standardized DREL must meet to support learning, education, and training." The group states that it is not seeking to create another rights expression, creating a field for yet another batle betwwen proponents of XrML (who will tell you that the language is free and open, but will omit the fact that they have patents on uses of the language) and backers of the Open Digital Rights Language (ODRL). With wide input, though, the field may shift as the group learns of more specific educational requirements. At the very least, people should write into the group to demand open and free languages and software, so that digital rights online does not become a proprietary - and monopoly - process.
