This looks like it could be interesting in the context of the rights statement that we discussed a few weeks back.

> Hi,
> 
> At the UK Open Data Institute we've been working on some guidance and
> a new vocabulary to help support the publication of machine-readable
> rights statements for open data. The vocabulary builds on existing
> work in this area (e.g. Dublin Core and Creative Commons) but
> addresses a few issues that we felt were underspecified.
> 
> The vocabulary is intended to work in a wide variety of contexts, from
> simple JSON documents and data packaging formats through to Linked
> Data and Web APIs.
> 
> The work is now at a stage where we're keen to get wider feedback from
> the community.
> 
> You can read a background on the work in this introductory blog post
> on the UK ODI blog:

> http://theodi.org/blog/machine-readable-rights-statements
> 
> The draft schema can be found here:

> http://schema.theodi.org/odrs/
> 
> And there are publisher and re-user guides to accompany it:
