But we do need metadata for rights in order to do that. I did a rights  
metadata schema for the University of California some years ago,  
although it may be too complex (it was designed to also meet the needs  
of archives). DC has a rights field that is very simple - it would be  
good, though, to define a set of values. Does anyone know of a rights  
vocabulary we could use?
