Open Access 7

“...free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers...” 8

“...free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers...” 9

My OA Tasklist ● Upload to Interweb ● Select a [CC] license ● Declare success? 10

An Aside: Why A CC License? ● Publishers/consumers are not all lawyers ● CC is a recognizable “brand” ● Network effect benefit: ● Use of a common license is beneficial if I'm reusing a single work ● Even more beneficial if I'm mixing works 11

“Without Technical Barriers” 12

“...free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers...” 13

Technical Implications ● Stable URL – we can link directly to it ● No user agent discrimination ● Resources are in a useful format [as data] ● “Open” ● Unencumbered ● XHTML? 16

CC Rights Expression Language 17

Previous Recommendation

<!­­   metadata ­­>

Pervasive Problems ● Opaque to parsers ● Opaque to humans ● Easy to screw up ● Overly verbose

Principles for Encoding in HTML ● Independence & Extensibility ● Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY) ● Visual Locality ● Remix Friendliness 21

RDFa ● Builds on [X]HTML ● Uses a few attributes (rel, rev, about, href, property, resource) to encode RDF triples in [X]HTML ● Extensible for emerging applications 22

ccREL for OA Works ● What license is this work available under? ● How should I attribute the author? ● Can I obtain additional rights, if needed? 25

26

27

Building an “Open” Ecosystem 28

CC0 ● “No Rights Reserved” ● A Waiver, not a License ● Waives copyright and neighboring rights ● Replaces Dedication part of old PDDC ● Launched March, 2009 ● http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/ 29

Norms ● Behavior expected for use of a work ● Enforced by social norms, not legal code ● For example: Citation ● Modeled using metadata, to be included on the deed ● Launch: 2009 Q4 30

Public Domain Assertion Tool ● Lots of PD works already exist ● How do people help identify them? ● Timeline: unknown; currently seeking support 31

CC Network ● Launched October 2008 ● A place creators to collect work references ● A platform for digital copyright registry exploration ● “Real world” demonstration of using distributed metadata ● Lays the foundation for exploring provenance 32

Profile Page 33

Network + License Badges 34

35

Reciprocal Metadata Owner of “Identity” Work Has Owner 36

“Reproducible Research” ● Papers are only one part of research ● What about software, data, etc? ● Currently exploring how we might help ● Recommendations for appropriate licensing for each piece ● Metadata to describe the “bundle” 37

Metadata Enhanced Search ● GOOG/YHOO index basic license metadata ● What if we were able to search any metadata? ● Developed prototype around Open Education ● Exploring new YHOO possibilities 38

39

Summary ● CC licenses are a natural choice for OA ● BOAI Definition implies very desirable technical characteristics for works ● ccREL/RDFa can be leveraged to add value ● Provide additional copyright information ● Add any metadata relevant to the publisher ● CC is building new tools on this core that we believe will enhance the “open” ecosystem 40
