Hi ODRLers:


The RightsML group of IPTC is currently running an Experimental Phase of
this standard which builds on ODRL.

One of the feedbacks is: how to express that content is licensed to a party:

-          The ODRL action "sell" defines that it is about trading an asset
- which is understood by the legislation of many countries the a full
transition of the ownership is executed. This is not the case for licensing.

-          The ODR action "lease" defines that an asset is made available
for a fixed period of time. The licensing of news content is in most cases
in perpetuity.

-          The ODR action "give" defines the period as "in perpetuity" - but
"without exchange of value", which is not the business model of most news
providers ;-)


Please point at any existing actions with an appropriate definition or
please think about adding this action to the ODRL vocabulary:

Name: license

Definition: The act of making available the asset to a third-party in
perpetuity with exchange of value.
