Open access and copyright issues can dominate discussions addressing the reuse of digital resources. Metadata reuse has introduced a host of rights questions and challenges. Metadata rights was explored via the SILS-Metadata Architectures and Applications class this past fall as part of a student issues presentation. Our meeting will include a recap of important issues and also covers copyright in the context of metadata, plus two case studies (one via Duke University Press, and the other examining open bibliographic data), and wraps up with a series of questions for discussion.
