504 - The Rights Stuff: Encouraging Appropriate Reuse with Standardized Rights Statements

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

RightsStatements.org provides a set of standardized rights statements that cultural heritage institutions can use to provide accurate, easily understandable, and machine-processable information about a digital object's rights, thereby enabling and encouraging appropriate reuse. Panelists present background on RightsStatements.org, detail the application of the statements, discuss the benefits of and barriers to implementation, provide multiple approaches for adoption within and across institutions, and make recommendations for moving forward using standardized and machine-processable rights statements.
