From the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) (via YouTube):

Curious about standardized rights statements? Want to learn how to apply them to your digital collection? Join the DPLA Rights Statements Working Group for Standardized Rights Statements 101. statements are a simple, standardized system of labels that more clearly communicate the copyright and re-use status of digital objects to the public. Adding these labels to your digital collections will improve usability and access for users. Presenters for this webinar will include members of the DPLA Rights Statements Working Group, many of whom are currently implementing rights statements for the collections they manage. They will share their expertise and experiences, as well as a wide range of resources for implementation
