In early 2016, an international collaboration including representatives from the DPLA, Europeana and Creative Commons communities, announced the availability of standardized rights statements for cultural heritage, rightsstatements.org. Come hear about the statements, the importance of interoperability in rights statements and why implementing them has the potential to further (re)use of our digital collections. Other possibilities around (re)use and maximal openness will also be discussed. Data from the DPLA will be mined and analyzed to provide evidentiary need as a part of this talk.
