Hi Leigh,

Thanks to the link to ODRS. I've added a related use-case to our wiki https://www.w3.org/2013/dwbp/wiki/Use_Cases#Machine-readability_and_Interoperability_of_Licenses

What are your thoughts on how ODRS does/could address:

a)      interoperability issues of data licenses

b)      Machine-readable SLA terms, with a focus on industry reuse https://www.w3.org/2013/dwbp/wiki/Use_Cases#Machine-readability_of_SLAs

Cheers,
Deirdre

I agree that defining license terms and specific licences is out of scope, but I think that its a best practice to publish data with licensing information clearly defined, in both a human and machine-readable form. That can be captured and recommended without restricting to specific licences.

I've done some work in this area already:

http://theodi.org/guides/publishers-guide-to-the-open-data-rights-statement-vocabulary
http://theodi.org/guides/odrs-reusers-guide

Data published without licensing isn't really fit for reuse as otherwise you can't determine what is legally permitted.

Hi Bernadette,

That`s great. I did not see that ....

I agree with you that to announce new data set could defined as a BP. However, I am not sure about the license. It is an option when you publish your data on the web. On the other hand, if you want to consider the data as "open data", them this is mandatory.

Best,
Ig

Hi Ig,

Thanks for your comments!

The two activities that you suggested are presented as possible Best Practices (in the end of the slides). When I was describing the life cycle, I was in doubt if they should be classified as activities or BP. In the end, I made the choice for describing them as BP, once I consider that they are "something that should be done"  instead of "something that must be done". However, I think this is worth a deeper discussion :)

Best regards!
Bernadette

Hi Bernadette,

Great work. I really like the spiral proposal for Data on the Web Life Cycle. I believe this proposal complements the document about BP for Publishing LD [1].

I would like to recommend to take into account two activities:

  1.  To specify the license applied to the data and
  2.  To announce the new data set.
I think this Spiral life cycle can really guide us to see the big picture of Best Practices from a publisher perspective.

Bernadette,

This is really helpful and I think we can refer to this as we explore the use cases together.  Nice work!


Best Regards,

Steve

Data on the Web Life Cycle


________________________________



Hi all,

I'd like to share some of my thoughts about the process of publishing and using data on the Web with you. I prepared some slides that describe the "Data on the Web Life Cycle", which presents the main tasks and activities performed during that process.

I also tried to exemplify some possible Data on the Web Best Practices, according to the proposed tasks.

As proposed by Yaso in our last meeting, I think that organizing the process in tasks (or steps) may help the identification of possible best practices.

This is just a preliminar version! If these ideas make sense to you, then I can also create a wiki page to help the collaborative work.

I'm sending both ppt and pdf versions. Please feel free to add comments or make suggestions.

Best regards,
Bernadette
