On 22 April, the Rights Data Integration (RDI) project was presented to the European Parliament's Working Group on IPR and Copyright Reform, chaired by MEP Jean-Marie Cavada.
Project coordinator Andrew Farrow explained how the project tests the Linked Content Coalition's Rights Reference Model (RRM), successfully demonstrating that it is possible to automate some, or all of the rights in the supply chain and to integrate existing media-specific solutions. He explained how RDI will help identify solutions to further the Digital Single Market and will boost functional online licensing solutions for the creative content market. RDI supports any business model, including “free use” where agreed to by rightsholders, and use of works in the public domain.
IFRRO is a partner in the RDI Consortium.
