== Associate license with content ==
Issue:  

It is common and useful to be able to explicitly associate a license 
or other rights statement with content.  There was an early request 
and use case provided by Creative Commons, and more recently from 
@BigBlueHat regarding existing functionality of annotation clients.

Proposal: 

Promote the usage of a license relationship on any resource by 
including it in the model and JSON-LD serialization.  Given other 
usage of dcterms in the same space, the obvious candidate is 
[dcterms:license](http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-terms/#terms-license),
 with a json-ld key of 'license'.  It could be associated with any 
resource (though not a literal body, of course) and would only apply 
to the resource that it is associated with.
