Right, i'm licensing something in between. Implicitly a whole dataset, 
in practise it is split up amongst several tens of thousands URIs, so 
each of those will get a license statement.

<work uri> <license> <license uri>

|            dcterms:license
small chunk of the work corresponding to a "place" and its context

When i get into EDINA and deploy some stuff I'll send a proper link.
I suspect i'm mixing up my document and object URIs and am, for example, 
attempting to license the entire town of Bosley under OdBL...

Advice has been much apprec :)
