That's right, so I guess we would need three ways for annotation a
knowledge base with a license:

* an annotation for the whole kowledge base
* an annotation for all triples with a certain subject
* an annotation for an individual triple

I guess we will have to define some kind of vocabulary here for
attaching license information, something including a property "hasLicense".

Ok, thanks - maybe we suggest this one as a default for Triplify.
