W3C Open Digital Rights Language Community Group

From Hilton Gibson, Stellenbosch University Library
 
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), an international community working together to develop Web standards, has launched the Open Digital Rights Language (ODRL) Initiative. This international effort is aimed at developing and promoting an open standard for policy expressions. ODRL provides flexible and interoperable mechanisms to support transparent and innovative use of digital content in publishing, distribution and consumption of digital media across all sectors and communities. The ODRL Policy model is broad enough to support traditional rights expressions for commercial transaction, open access expressions for publicly distributed content, and privacy expressions for social media.
