MetadataWe are working on a plan to improve the quality ofmetadata that is useful for rights checkingWe are working with some types of data providersto increase acceptance of our approach (CC0)
Digital objectsWe are exploring how rights statements canbecome more granular (attaching them to speciﬁcviews instead of the aggregation/metadata record)
Available rights statementsAdd a rights statement for Orphan worksAdd a rights statement for works that are out ofcopyright but whose use is restricted bycontractual agreements.Remodel the rights reserved statements•retire restricted access•add a paid version indicator and review use of paid accessExplore the ability to move rights statements to anon-Europeana namespace that can be sharedwith similar projects
A content re-use framework forEuropeanaThe framework needs to be open for all Europeanadata providers on a voluntary basis.It needs to set minimum requirements for digitalobjects that are available via the framework•In terms of rights status (must allow re-use)•In terms of relevance of the content (no census records)•In terms of quality (minimum size / quality)•Direct access to the digital object (speciﬁc ﬁle formats?)The framework needs to provide the ability tospecify conditional access rules.
