ODRL initiative

an open policy language for the digital commons

ODRL Services Working Group


The ODRL Services (ODRL-S) Profile Working Group is developing the semantics for licensing Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) services. The profile will address the core semantics for the licenses to enable services to be used, reused, and amalgamated with other services. By expressing the policy terms in ODRL, greater features can be supported, such as automatically detecting conflicts in service conditions, and making explicit all requirements and conditions.
