Europeana Sounds Kick-off Feb 2014 WP3 Licensing Guidelines

  1. 1. Europeana Sounds Kick-Off WP3: Licensing Guidelines Lisette Kalshoven, Kennisland
  2. 2. Starting point
  3. 3. The Europeana Licensing Framework (ELF) is the framework of agreements, guidelines and terms and conditions that facilitates the supply, exchange, access to and use of metadata and content via Europeana.
  4. 4. metadata 4
  5. 5. Publishing metadata Main principle: All metadata must be available under the same (non restrictive) terms • All metadata that Europeana receives from the data providers is published under the terms of the CC0 Universal Public Domain Dedication.
  6. 6. content 6
  7. 7. Publishing content Main principle: Europeana does not publish (or even hosts) digital objects • Europeana publishes metadata about digital objects. The metadata describing a digital object must carry a rights statement related to that digital object. • edm:rights supports a limited list of rights statements that can be used to describe the rights status of the digital object (and the preview image). • If the digital object is in the public domain the rights statement must say so.
  8. 8. What does the ELF mean for Europeana Sounds? • All objects in Europeana must have a (correct) rights label • All objects that are in the public domain must remain in the public domain (Public Domain Charter) • User Contributed Content (UCC) - CC BY-SA • Respect the licenses and statements provided when using objects for tools, new works or services
  9. 9. WP3 objective Improve access to out-of-commerce works and increase the opportunities for creative reuse of Europeana content
