Managing Digital Rights Metadata with Semantic Technologies

An important part of any DAM strategy is tracking digital rights. Simply finding a digital asset is not enough: users need to know how that asset can be reused without violating copyright and licensing restrictions. Digital rights metadata is complex and highly variable, making it extremely difficult to store in many DAM systems. In conjunction with Henry Stewart, Demian Hess recently delivered the webinar "Managing Digital Rights Metadata with Semantic Technologies." This webinar discussed the advantages of using new semantic technologies to manage digital rights metadata.

Key issues addressed in the webinar are:

  • Common techniques and limitations of storing digital rights data in a DAM
  • Common digital rights data points
  • Key concepts in semantic technology
  • How to model digital rights semantically
  • Demonstration of querying digital rights metadata in a DAM
