ODRL Version 2.1 Ontology

The Open Digital Rights Language (ODRL) provides flexible and interoperable mechanisms to support transparent and innovative use of digital content in publishing, distribution, and consumption of of digital media across all sectors and communities. The ODRL Policy model is broad enough to support traditional rights expressions for commercial transaction, open access expressions for publicly distributed content, and privacy expressions for social media.

Examples of use

The examples in this section are RDF expressions of the scenarios provided by the ODRL Version 2.0 Core Model.

Set

The following shows an instance of a set policy. The set shows a policy expression, stating that the asset, http://example.com/asset:9898, is the target of the permission to reproduce and the prohibition to modify.

@prefix odrl: <http://www.w3.org/ns/odrl/2/> .

<http://example.com/policy:0099>
	a odrl:Set;
	odrl:permission [
		a odrl:Permission ;

	] ;
	odrl:prohibition [

		odrl:target <http://example.com/asset:9898> ;
		odrl:action odrl:modify
	] .

Because all of the rules associated with this policy have the same target, and do not have any constraints or duties (requirements), one may abbreviate the expression of the policy and use the Dublin Core rights or license predicates to associate the asset with that policy:

@prefix odrl: <http://www.w3.org/ns/odrl/2/> .
@prefix dct: <http://purl.org/dc/terms/> .

<http://example.com/asset:9898> dct:license <http://example.com/policy:0099> .

The following shows the instance of an offer policy. The offer contains the music file http://example.com/music:4545 that is offered by the party http://example.com/sony:10 with the permissions to play and copy the file.

Agreement

The following shows the instance of an agreement policy. The agreement contains all entities shown in the offer scenario above. A new party, http://example.com/billie:888 has been added. This party accepted the previous offer and thus is now the buyer of the permission play and copy: i.e. they are now linked as assignee of the permissions and duty entities.

Offer and next policy

The following shows the instance of an offer policy showing the next-policy structure.

The party http://example.com/sony:99 assigns the permission distribute directly to the potential buyer of the permission who will pay €1,000. The distribute permission is also constrained to the country Italy. The potential assignee may then distribute the target asset according to the next-policy target asset linked directly from this duty. In this case, the next policy asset stipulates that the potential assignee may only offer the display permission to downstream consumers.

Privacy policy

The following shows the instance of a privacy policy.

The target asset is personal data and the assignee is allowed to distribute the asset only for the purpose of contacting the subject of the personal data. The purpose value is taken from the P3P privacy purpose vocabulary.

Additionally, the assigner (the party who the personal data is about) has stipulated that the assignee must delete the asset after a 30 day period (retention policy).

Permission and prohibition

The following shows the instance of an agreement policy with both a permission and a prohibition. The party http://example.com/sony:10 assigns the permission play to the party http://example.com/billie:888 at the same time they are prohibited from utilising the target asset as a mobile:ringtone. Additionally, in case of any conflict, the conflict attribute is set to perm indicating that the permission entity will take precedence.

Inheritance

The following shows the instance of a (child) policy http://example.com/policy:9999 inheriting from another (parent) policy http://example.com/policy:5531. The inherit-from attribute of the (child) policy has the same identifier as the (parent) policy's own identifier.

In this inheritance example, the parent policy allows the party http://example.com/billie:888 to print the parent’s target asset. The child policy allows the party http://example.com/class:IT01 (a group of people) to display the child’s target asset. Since the child policy also inherits from the parent policy, then the party http://example.com/class:IT01 can also print the parent’s target asset.

Social network

The following shows the instance of an agreement policy for a social network scenario.

The target asset are photos posted to a social network site and the assigner is the owner of the photos. The assignee is a group and represents the football network members on the social network, who are each allowed to display the photos.
