Minimal rights will require a "Rights statement" with a URI and a "Rights holder".
If you have a temporary rights situation (say an embargo that restricts rights initially), then you can use "pcdmrts:rightsOverride" and "pcdmrts:rightsOverrideExpiration". These are in the "pcdmrts" namespace since no current properties elsewhere worked well for this use case.Concern over if requiring the EDM namespace could be an issue since most of us won't already use that?
In cases of sharing metadata, you can have application logic that only exposes the "rightsOverride" when it is valid and otherwise exposes the "EDM" once it expires. Smarter harvesters like DPLA can likely figure it out if you let them know you support this rights recommendation.
Question if requiring the EDM namespace could be an issue since most of us won't already use that?
Really need feedback and want to send this out to hydra-tech, hydra-community, islandora before the next call!
Review next deliverable: Mapping to WebACLs
No one on call with experience on this. As such, they will follow up with the Fedora 4 group.
