[open-bibliography] Developing guidelines for libraries licensing content and/or discovery services

yesterday I published a post called "Discovery silos vs. the open web"
on openbiblio.net, see [1].

The developments described in the post might be a good reason for this
group to take some action. I see the opportunity for our group to get
libraries to push towards open metadata from content providers.

My proposal: We develop something like Igelu's proposed clause for
contracts between libraries and content providers with the difference
that our proposed clause should enable the publication of metadata as
open data. (Actually, I already proposed something like this for the
last virtual meeting, see [3].)

What do you think?

All the best
