,,,New and updated rights statements
are now live and available to use.

2016-11-11_13-00-16Our collection of available rights statements now totals fourteen, each with their own features. This includes the existing suite of 8 Creative Commons Licences and tools, including the Public Domain Mark.

In addition, ‘Rights Reserved – Paid Access’ is no longer supported. All objects using these statements are, with the data providers’ agreement, now labelled with ‘In Copyright’.

  • In Copyright – EU Orphan Work (was ‘Orphan Work’)
  • No Copyright – Non Commercial Use Only (was ‘Out of Copyright – non commercial reuse’)
