Dear all,

If you work with data that comes with different licences, or you want to 
apply specific permissions and obligations to your work, this is for you.

The W3C Permissions and Obligations Expression (POE) Working Group [1] 
is delighted to announce the publication of updated Working Drafts of 
the ODRL Information Model [2] and ODRL Vocabulary & Expression [3].

The ODRL Information Model [2] offers a framework for the underlying 
concepts, entities, and relationships that form the foundational basis 
for the semantics of ODRL expressions. The aim of the ODRL Information 
Model is to support flexible Policy expressions by allowing the author 
to include as much, or as little, expressive detail about the terms and 
conditions for Asset usage, the Parties involved, and obligations.

The ODRL Vocabulary & Expression [3] describes the potential terms used 
in ODRL Policy expressions and how to serialise them. The terms form 
part of the ODRL Ontology and formalise the semantics. The wide set of 
terms in the vocabulary provides the support for communities to use ODRL 
as the primary language to express common use cases.

These deliverables are the outcome of collaborative effort from the 
Working Group to meet the identified requirements in the POE Use Cases 
and Requirements NOTE [4]. We believe the ODRL Information Model 
document and ODRL Vocabulary & Expression are now technically near 
completion, and would appreciate your final comments before the WG 
embarks on the W3C Candidate Recommendation process. We are also eager 
to hear how you are implementing, or plan to implement, the ODRL 
Vocabulary & Expression to enable us to better understand the 
serialisaton choices and normative terms.

Please send any comments or examples of how you are using ODRL via the 
following methods:
1 - Email to <public-poe-comments@w3.org> which is archived [5]
2 - Create an Issue on the POE GitHub Repository [6]

Please send feedback by the 30th April 2017.

We look forward to hearing from you and will respond to all comments.

The W3C Permissions and Obligations Expression Working Group.

This request for comment arises from the liaisons listed in POE WG's 
charter [7]
