Licence information in schema.org and LRMI

The LRMI (Learning Resources Metadata Initiative) had from the start a property called useRightsUrl, "The URL where the owner specifies permissions for using the resource." But as Phil Basrker notes, Schema.org skipped useRightsURL when it adopted most of the LRMI properties, pending further review. Then last June, it adopted a rights property which, says Barker, does everything LRMI wants. "It does everything that LRMI wanted by way of identifying the URL of the licence under which the creative work is released," he writes,  but also it "allows one to encode the name, url, description, date, accountable person and a whole host of other information about the licence."
