If it's not published under a certain licence but copyrighted (like in
this case), you should use rel="copyright" instead of rel-licence.

The value "copyright" is a predefined linktype in HTML,
and says that "Refers to a copyright statement for the current document."
So I think using rel-copyright would perfectly fit in.
