IPTC and Rights Expression Languages November 2010

  1. 1. IPTC and Rights Expression Languages Stuart Myles Associated Press 4th November 2010
  2. 2. © 2010 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved 2 Rights Examples • “No New York” • “Not for Yahoo” • “No Canada mobile” • “No sales” • “Any non-commercial use, requires attribution” • “No Internet/Mobile usage without Football Association Premier League (FAPL) license” • “No mobile use until 2 hours after the match, website users are obliged to comply with DFL restrictions”
  3. 3. IPTC and Rights • In March 2010, we reviewed IPTC rights support – NITF, NewsML 1, the G2 Family – Each offers semi-structured natural language statements • Conclusion a machine-readable solution is required – Principally for use within the G2 family of standards • IPTC would prefer to select an existing language, rather than developing a new REL entirely from scratch – We evaluated candidate languages and decided that ODRL was the best option – We are working within ACAP v2 to create an ODRL Profile – Questions raised about patents on RELs © 2010 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved 3
  4. 4. Rights Expression Language? • A machine-readable language to convey rights associated with a piece of content • Automatically answer the question – Can we use this content for this particular purpose? • Rights: – Permissions and restrictions on the use of a piece of content – Granted by a rights holder to a user • Basic Structure: – {Party A} grants {Party B} the right to {Action C} with {Item D} under {Condition E} © 2010 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved 4
  5. 5. The ODRL Approach • Core model – The basic framework for expressing rights and restrictions • Domain-specific vocabularies – Specific actions or constraints – Designed to be used by a particular industry – Terms and their definitions • Common vocabulary – Designing a vocabulary that is not aimed at a specific vertical – Based on other RELs, including PLUS • Encoding – Expressing ODRL in XML, RDF (perhaps JSON, microformats) © 2010 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved 5
  6. 6. What You Can Do • IPTC members can contribute in a number of ways: • Supply more rights expression examples for evaluation • Join ACAP/ODRL & develop the news-specific vocabularies – Next ACAP conference call • 16th November 2010 – Next ODRL Skype call • 23rd November 2010 – Sign up to the ODRL/ACAP wiki – http://odrl.net/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=ACAP+Profile © 2010 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved 6
