3 Publications by The Permissions and Obligations Expression WG

   21 July 2016

   The Permissions & Obligations Expression (POE) Working Group has published the First Public Working Drafts for the "ODRL Information Model" and the "ODRL Vocabulary & Expression." These FPWDs provide a flexible and interoperable information model, vocabulary, and encoding mechanisms for describing statements about digital content usage. The deliverables are based on the previous reports created by the W3C ODRL Community Group and form the baseline for future enhancements by the POE WG.


   In addition, the POE WG has published the "Use Case and Requirements Note." These Use Cases will be reviewed and analyzed further into detailed requirements. The POE WG is calling for wider community feedback and contributions to the set of Use Cases to further enhance and improve the ODRL permissions and obligations expression language.
