Proposals for DC Rights-related Terms

Various authors, Dublin Core Metadata Initiative, Feb 16, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Some new proposals for Dublin Core element descriptions, including isAvailableAt and Provenance, along with the rights related terms mentioned in the title. I could not find a place to offer feedback on the rights terms, but it's OK, as the method Dubmlin Core proposes, to link to an external rights metadata file (such as a Creative Commons file) works for us here; we do exactly the same thing, linking to an external ODRL file from the rights description fiel;d in elarning object metadata. But Dublin Core should be aware that the external file may contain not merely a license but also an offer, that is, a document stating the conditions under which use of a resource would be licensed.
