How do you deal with different rights status of objects and digital representations, and how do you communicate that to the public effectively? How do you decide to implement structured copyright information, such as Rights Statements? Where do you start? What are the advantages and disadvantages? What’s the impact of implementing Rights Statements?

This panel brought together practitioners, implementers and developers of Rights Statements to help us broaden our understanding of Rights Statements.

This webinar took place on 28 May 2020, from 16.00 - 17.00.
