  16. 16. Vision and market gap • Motivation – Comments are becoming an integral part of the Web, and not only the Social Web – Yet, comment management is largely ad- hoc and inefficient • Grand vision: interconnect, search, store, retrieve, evaluate comments that exist on the Web Methinks Methinks Application • Advantages for consumers/end-users – Become well-informed in just a glance – Quickly identify non-standard information that can be found only in comments – Browse based on arguments, not on words • Advantages for analysts (admins) – A cheap way to integrate fancy, comment-related functionality in one’s web site – A measurable way to extract conclusions (analytics) in online discussions Contact: Giorgos Flouris ( more at stand #3

  32. 32. Introduction DALICC stands for Data Licenses Clearance Center. The project‘s aim is to develop a software framework that significantly reduces the costs of license clearance in the creation of derivative (data) works. DALICC follows a deontic approach to express machine- readable permissions, prohibitions and duties defined in a license. DALICC utilizes the ODRL 2.0 ontology in combination with CCRel. Additionally DALICC utilizes an extended set of properties that are necessary to capture the full semantic spectrum of legal expressions defined in a license text. By doing so DALICC allows to represent property rights policies in a legally valid and machine-processable way. Partners: • UAS St. Pölten (Lead) – Tassilo Pellegrini, Andrea Schönhofer, Peter Judmaier, Stefanie Größbacher • Vienna University of Economics & Business – Simon Steyskal, Sabrina Kirrane, Axel Polleres • University of Innsbruck – Oleksandra Panasiuk, Anna Fensel • Höhne, In der Maur & Partner Rechtsanwälte OG – Markus Dörfler • Semantic Web Company GmbH – Thomas Thurner, Victor Mireles-Chavez, Kurt Moser Contact: Acknowledgment: DALICC is funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) under the program "ICT of the Future" between November 2016 - October 2018. More information DALICC Vocabulary – REL Extension The DALICC vocabulary extensions evolved from an in depth analysis of 15 standard licenses (including CC, APACHE, BSD, GPL MIT) under the supervision of legal experts. The following expressions need to be added to cover the full semantic spectrum of copyright statements: PROPERTIES AFFECTING THE ASSET PROPERTIES AFFECTING THE LICENCE dalicc:charge dalicc:addStatement dalicc:sublicense dalicc:attributionNotice dalicc:promote dalicc:attachOffer dalicc:publish dalicc:chargeOffer dalicc:irrevocable dalicc:modificationNotice dalicc:noWarrantyNotice dalicc:patentFree dalicc:patentNotice dalicc:perpetual dalicc:royaltyFree dalicc:worldwide The examples illustrate the RDF/Turle syntax of BSD 3.0, CC-BY and APACHE using the DALICC properties (bold).
