OGC have had lawyers involved in drafting the license, but I tend to agree that All Rights Reserved does not immediately appear consistent with the other provisions. I've flicked this on to OGC to see if there is an explanation.

Subject: Comments on how to represent licenses in ontologies (and on the licenses themselves)

Dear all,

I just finished ACTION-274 and updated the wiki with the comments from my colleague Víctor Rodríguez Doncel on the representation of licenses in the ontologies and on the analysis of both licenses.

https://www.w3.org/2015/spatial/wiki/Ontology_rights_and_licence#Comments_from_V.C3.ADctor_Rodr.C3.ADguez_Doncel


In short:
* Using cc:license or dct:license is a common practice and suffices.
* Both licenses are essentially the same (but the OGC one contains a contradiction).

Kind regards,
