Machine Readable Rights and the News Industry day 2013, Mar 21, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The W3C's Phil Archer expresses the dilemma of rights on the web in a nutshell: "Expressing rights statements on the Web is easy. Getting people to listen is hard — what's in it for them?" And this was in essence the question explored at the International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC) meetings on machine readable rights last week. The IPTC manages a series of press-related standards, including NewsML, EventsML and SportsML. This page lists 20 presentations, including the Archer presentation mentioned above, Jeff Sedlik on the PLUS picture licensing system, Micheal Steidl on rights metadata and social media, and much more. There's a full day's worth of browsing on this website, and if you're involved with news media at all, clip and save.
