   RE: [xml-dev] RDDL: Can we add a "copyright" version

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I don't follow probably because I don't 
know what is meant by a "RDDL directory".

Is the "RDDL directory" a RDDL document or 
the RDDL design?  IOW, are you asserting 
claims to *a* RDDL page or to *the* RDDL 
language design?

I think you mean asserting rights for a 
RDDL page and the assets it points to. 
So, if the RDDL page is pointing to 
some set of resources, are you licensing these?

I don't think that works.  Following a link 
does not obligate.  That is a tenet of the 
web architecture.

Or you are licensing the page and the 
rights to use it.

It seems you are working on a digital 
rights management function for using 
RDDL documents or the resources indicated 
by the RDDL document.

If they are the author, yes. If not they are not involved in the process
at all!

I just want to provide links to documents (XHTML or RDF or whatever its
nature is) describing the licence under which the RDDL directory may be

If you have a XML document, you have its schema.
