The IPTC is organizing a day entitled “Machine Readable Rights and the News Industry: Opportunities, Standards and Challenges”. It will be held on 12th March in Amsterdam. We want to get the major players interested in machine readable rights together, to explore the possibilities of working with the members of the IPTC to take advantage of the opportunities and overcome the challenges. We’re encouraging business, editorial, technical and legal people working on rights to consider attending – there is no charge for attending the event, but you need to register:
The IPTC has been working on machine readable rights for the news industry, basing RightsML (http://dev.iptc.org/RightsML) on the ODRL framework. I think it would be great if members of this group would be able to attend.
