CaPRéT: Basic Analytics

Rescooped from my "free and open content"scoop-it. I am a bit obsessed with machine readable licences and with usage tracking, and i've always thought they could be better connected than they are. starting to see some solutions now ... open attribute is a way of marking up content with creative commons licences , making that information visible to  users and easily cited through a browser plug-in.  fab in itself. capret, produced  with a jisc cetis  grant, uses the open attribute method to *automatically* copy the licence information with the content. AND the content provider gets usage information back. now this is the future. semi/automated attribution embedded in the way the web works, in a way that fits business models for open and free content. oh yeah!

ImageStamper | Stay Copyright-safe | baked-in-licenses | Scoop.it

via gabi witthaus ... Since writing about this in Scoop.it several months ago, I have used this tool alwmost daily. Apart from its actual purpose, which is to keep cached copies of the licences attached to images in case of later queries, it's a great way to keep a log of all the images I use from Flickr so that I can easily find them again if I need them.

Users, narcissism and control: a great summary of citation-style tools

Digital Citation and machine-readable licencing are being worked on as seperate problems, but I think they are related. I'd love to see more cross-talk between these experts. This report from SURF NL is a great summary of where citation tools are developing.
