Re Beta 1.0.3 (DB version 2.2.3) Build Apr 26 2018 15:55:31 Stakeholder’s rights are currently linked to a subject and I would query that. A subject is, say, an artefact, and in possibly the majority of cases, there’s no copyright in the object/artefact/subject, the copyright is in the work which documents it. If, say, Organisation A has a Greek sculpture on public display, and they commission a 3-D scan, and organisation ‘B’ has a photogrammetry/RTI campaign, and organisation ‘C’ takes a series of close-up images to document some specific details. Organisation A is linked to the subject as, say, its curator – but has no automatic rights to any representations of it. Organisation ‘A’ may well, though, have rights to the 3-D scan they commissioned. Organisation ‘B’ will probably have rights to their photogrammetry/RTI, and organisation ‘C’ will probably have rights to their documentary photographs. As the linkage is currently to the subject, then in the above case there may be three competing and possibly contradictory rights linkages, one from each organisation, and there would be no way to differentiate which set of images etc. was covered by which rights statements. Whilst there may (more rarely?) be a rights linkage between a stakeholder and a subject or artefact, I would suggest that as the rights really apply to a set of images or similar, it would be better to allow a rights statement to be associated with, say, an acquisition project rather than with the subject – that way it avoids possibility for competing/contradictory rights claims on a subject.

Re Beta 1.0.3 (DB version 2.2.3) Build Apr 26 2018 15:55:31 Appreciate Rights included by default relate to the twelve promoted by ‘Rights Statements’ – but they’re not necessarily either applicable or appropriate, and they don’t necessarily apply in all jurisdictions either (and even the ‘Rights Statements’ organisation recognises that their twelve not universally applicable). Appreciate you don’t want anyone tampering with those twelve, but think probably need to allow for others to be added/edited as well.
