3D ICONS IPR experience

  1. 1. 30/08/2013 3D models and IPR based on the experiences of the 3D-ICONS Project Sheena Bassett, Project Manager MDR Partners This project has been funded with support from the European Commission‘s CIP ICT PSP programme 1
  2. 2. 30/08/2013 3D ICONS & IPR - Overview About the 3D-ICONS Project The 3D-ICONS Approach Process definition IPR Considerations The Europeana DEA Creative Commons CARARE 2.0 Schema IANUS & DARIAH-DE Workshop, Berlin 2nd-3rd September 2013 www.3dicons-project.eu 2
  3. 3. 30/08/2013 About the 3D-ICONS Project Three year Best Practice Network – To supply approx. 3,000 3D models of iconic monuments and – – – – buildings to Europeana Develop a process pipeline to cover digitisation to publication of 3D models and address IPR management. 19 partners, 17 content providers, one technology provider and MDR Partners for project management and dissemination. Started February 2012. Challenges have included: Definitions – small and large models, entities, details … IPR (signature of DEA, agreement with authorities) Publication formats – technology developments 3
  4. 4. 30/08/2013 3D-Models: IPR Attitudes Partners are supplying content from UK, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Belgium, Romania, Ireland and Cyprus. – Many own existing digital models – New digitisation happening. Authorities attitudes vary from – – – – refusal of permission to enthusiastic promotion. Some partners have had protracted discussions with rights owners regarding the existing data and derivative models. Owners of data which may have intrinsic value to them as rights holders. IPR policies can be “legacy”. Other national authorities who see 3D as a good way to promote interest in cultural heritage and increase tourism. Authorities under economic pressure … 4
  5. 5. 30/08/2013 The 3D-ICONS Approach Default IPR position for 3D models is BY-NC-ND. – This licence is the most restrictive of our six main licences, only allowing others to download your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they can't change them in any way or use them commercially. 30%-40% partners now using CC for managing their IPR. Publication formats and IPR protection – Security loophole in 3D-PDF – Looking at HTML5/WebGL, UNREAL and Unity3D also. – Nexus: Takes original hi-res model and renders WebGL on screen. Converted files stored on owner’s server. – Technologies offer some protection but nothing is hacker-proof. 5

  8. 8. 30/08/2013 Content IPR to be considered Content to be provided for Europeana – 3D models in suitable publication format Metadata to be provided to Europeana – Covered by the Data Exchange Agreement Metadata not provided to Europeana – CARARE 2.0 Schema much richer than EDM Content to be provided to a 3D-ICONS portal – Under discussion More complex models/data Richer metadata No conflict with Europeana 8
  9. 9. 30/08/2013 Europeana Data Exchange Agreement Europeana uses Creative Commons Licenses for metadata Metadata supplied to Europeana is covered by the CC0 Licence – New content providers sometimes get confused by the DEA To summarise the DEA conditions: – All content suppliers have total control over the metadata – – – – supplied to Europeana (and thumbnail images - optional) Suppliers can request to have metadata withdrawn Suppliers have absolute control over the content (URL). The metadata is designed to facilitate search and retrieval Metadata may be used in 3rd party apps (e.g. geo-locations). 9
  10. 10. 30/08/2013 Example of Geo-location data in use: What is Where? http://carare.eculturelab.eu/Ca rare50m/Map.html Maps the geo-location (physical position) recorded for each item supplied by CARARE to Europeana. IPR: NL do not supply locations of marine wrecks. 10
  11. 11. 30/08/2013 CARARE 2.0 Metadata Schema Developed in the CARARE project as a rich schema for archaeological domain – Based on existing standards with some additions (MIDAS, LIDO) – Used for 3D models provided by CARARE (~ 50 3D-PDFs). CARARE 2.0 extended model to cover specific requirements of 3D models – Provenance (London Charter paradata) e.g. digitisation and processing methods, equipment used, datasets …) Mapped to EDM in MINT tool and ingested via MoRE. 11
  12. 12. 30/08/2013 CARARE 2.0 IPR Statements Specifies: – Rights for whole collections – Rights associated with the Heritage Asset, – Rights associated with the digital object itself (copyright, access rights, reproduction rights) – Rights for the metadata. Note that Metadata mapped to the EDM is covered by the DEA and is CC0. 12
  13. 13. 30/08/2013 CARARE 2.0 IPR Statements in Detail 1) Collection information Rights – associated with the collection as a whole. 2) Heritage Asset Identification Set Record Information - Basic administrative information about the record. The information includes: Metadata Rights – statement about any rights to the metadata, include a link to a licence online if appropriate. Rights (source = DC) – a statement of any rights associated with the heritage asset. References – these are sources of information about the heritage asset in publications and archival sources (for example, bibliographic references etc.). Source = MIDAS + DCMI Terms. The information includes: Rights (source = MIDAS) (Global) 13
  14. 14. 30/08/2013 CARARE 2.0 IPR Statements in Detail Cont’d 3) Digital Resource Rights (source = MIDAS) (Global) – the rights associated with the digital object itself. The is information about the rights associated with the object, metadata and the digital surrogate being harvested into the service environment based on MIDAS Heritage. The information includes: – Copyright credit line –rights holder and rights dates – Access rights – access rights to the content. – Reproduction rights – reproduction rights including contact information – License – a URI indicating a license or conditions for the use of the object or data, – Europeana Rights – one of the 12 rights statements used by Europeana in its portal. Required for content being provided to Europeana. 14
  15. 15. 30/08/2013 Mappings to EDM The current mappings for IPR expressions in EDM can be summarised as follows: 1) Provided Cultural Heritage Object e.g. Mona Lisa painting – dc:rights (Optional) 2) ORE Aggregation – Cultural Heritage Object – edm:rights (Mandatory) = URI 3) Web Resource (digital object) – dc:rights (Optional) – edm:rights (Optional) = URI. 15
  16. 16. 30/08/2013 ESE/EDM Metadata Schema Rights statements (DC: Rights) are either encoded as literal statements or as URLs referring to web pages that contain information about the applicable rights. The web pages inform the user about the terms under which the digital object and the corresponding preview can be used. Europeana uses 12 different Creative Commons rights statements in total which define the type of access and use allowed or not. (Currently used for sorting by Copyright).
