Community & Business Groups

ODRL Community Group

The W3C ODRL Community Group's aim is to develop and promote an open international specification for Policy Language expressions. The ODRL Policy Language provides a flexible and interoperable information model to support transparent and innovative use of digital assets in the publishing, distribution and consumption of content, applications, and services across all sectors and communities. The ODRL Policy model is targeted to support the business models of open, educational, government, and commercial communities through Profiles that enhance the model to align to their requirements whilst providing a common semantic layer for interoperability.

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.

Invitation: Machine Readable Rights and the News Industry

Hello,

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.

Regards,

Stuart
