It is often the case that more than one copyright applies to a resource.

If multiple copyrights apply, simply use multiple <LINK>s

<LINK REL="COPYRIGHT" HREF="./copyrights/foo.html" />
<LINK REL="COPYRIGHT" HREF="./copyrights/bar.html" />
<LINK REL="COPYRIGHT" HREF="./copyrights/baz.html" />

The copyright does not require an @role. As I mentioned earlier,
the use of <LINK REL="COPYRIGHT" .../> is sufficient.
