Dear Pascal,

Thanks a lot for taking the time to warn us!
We're aware of the issue--it's a problem of our press release "system" so to say. But we can't really change it, but.ly is not flexible :-( . This is why I've put a better link on the front page of from data.europeana.eu...

Cheers,

Antoine

>> Dear Partners,
>>
>> As Linked Open Data (LOD) is gaining traction in the information world right now, Europeana has just launched an _animation<http://vimeo.com/36752317>_ to explain something about it and its benefits for users and data providers.
>>
>> As major heritage institutions are embracing the concept and making their data openly available, Europeana is also* *facilitating LOD developments. We've published our first dataset comprising _2.4 million objects<http://data.europeana.eu>_under CC0. Not only can this data be enriched to improve user experience, but it can also be used to develop innovative applications and help create new web services.
>>
>> Support for Open Data innovation is also at the root of Europeana’s new _Data Exchange Agreement<http://pro.europeana.eu/support-for-open-data>_, the contract that you, as partners, are asked to agree to when your metadata goes into Europeana.
>>
>> The Data Exchange Agreement has now been signed by all the national libraries, by leading national museums such as the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, and by many of the content providers for entire countries, such as Sweden’s National Heritage Board. The new Data Exchange Agreement dedicates the metadata to the Public Domain and comes into effect on 1 July 2012, after which all metadata in Europeana will be available as Open Data.
>>
>> Europeana has just put out a press release<http://bit.ly/w6tS2Y>  about the animation and Linked Open Data pilot. It would be valuable if you could translate the release, put it on your website, circulate it to your press lists and forward it to your networks.

>> With regards,
