Hi Alejandra,

At the moment in the DCAT TTL and the other RDF serializations, we have the
statement

> dct:license <
https://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/2015/copyright-software-and-document>
;"

If I remember well, we inserted this link when validating of DCAT by mean
of OOPS http://oops.linkeddata.es/.

I do not know if we want to change it or if you think the license should
also be mentioned elsewhere.

 Cheers,
 Riccardo
