Hi folks

It seems that there are two concurrent publications and namespaces for the
Creative Commons Rights Expression Language.

http://creativecommons.org/schema.rdf uses http://creativecommons.org/ns#
http://web.resource.org/cc/schema.rdf uses http://web.resource.org/cc/

The first one looks at first sight more reliable since it is maintained by
Creative Commons folks themselves
It is apparently the namespace underlying CC tag on CKAN packages
http://ckan.net/tag/format-cc
Datasets under this tag indeed use it, such as Eurostat or Geospecies
(and BTW it would be great if CKAN tags pages could explicit the vocabulary
namespace underlying the tag, if any)

OTOH I found the second one to be used by a bunch of more or less famous
ontologies such as:

BIO http://purl.org/vocab/bio/0.1
Music Ontology http://purl.org/ontology/mo/
FRBR http://purl.org/vocab/frbr/core
Review Ontology http://purl.org/stuff/rev
Talis Address Schema http://schemas.talis.com/2005/address/schema
VANN http://purl.org/vocab/vann

So I wonder ... I cc people behind both vocabularies, maybe they can do
something about it?

Best

Bernard
