Re: AGENDA: LD4LT call Thursday 17th July 15.00 CEST, 13.00 UTC

Dear all,

I have edited the wiki at, 
reflecting some of Penny's comments.
The new edited text with the recommendations/guidelines reads as follows:

    /*R1. Improve the license representation in RDF.*/
    /Create a licenseInfo class, whose properties detail the licensing
    information. The licenseInfo instance must include at least the
    "license" property, which declares the license with a well-known
    license URI like The
    license details can be given with vocabularies like CC-REL or the
    ODRL vocabulary (the latter being preferred for its richness). The
    licenseInfo must include a human-readable label for the license, and
    a license version. A resource may be linked to one or more instances
    of licenseInfo, allowing dual licensing.A resource may be linked to
    one or more instances of licenseInfo, allowing dual licensing./
    /*R2. Make a RDF version of the most common licenses. Licenses will
    be more easily classified, searched and retrieved. The possibility
    of having access control system to linguistic resources will be

My next step is editing the Google spreadsheet.
