The PA Digital Metadata Rights Subgroup Team is excited to present the second of three video modules on copyright and rights statements. The second module, “What is a Rights Statement?” provides an overview of rights statements and their application for digitized cultural heritage collections. The video covers: what are rights statements, what are they not, a history of rightsstatements.org, and overview of the statements. It also covers licenses, a comparison of rights statements and licenses, the benefits of normalized rights statements, the challenges and risks, and sources for more information.
Look for our next video, “Implementing RightsStatements.org” in December.
