Abstract

An issue which has been quietly on the agenda for well over a decade has risen to prominence over the last couple of years: improving the commu- nication of access and use permissions.

A number of different projects have arisen, each dealing with a different facet of this challenge. Creative Commons (http://creativecommons.org/) will be familiar to all readers of serials; the work that EDItEUR (http://www.editeur.org/) has been undertaking in the development of ONIX for Publication Licences (ONIX-PL) probably only marginally less so. The work of the PLUS Coalition (http://www.useplus.com/) in standards for the licensing of images is also attracting growing attention.
