Rights Management Group – copyrightMD


In 2004, the CDL formed a short-term Rights Management Group (RMG) to advise on issues concerning rights protection and fair use. From 2005 through 2006, the RMG did an analysis of the functional requirements related to copyright metadata, identified key data elements for expressing copyright metadata, and formalized these elements into a prototype “proof of concept” schema, copyrightMD XML. copyrightMD is compatible with and can be used as an extender to the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS).
