Introduction

262460832_6638464deb_m.jpg While rel-license has successfully allowed publishers to semantically express licenses to their web pages since first introduced in early 2004, the need to express licenses for external resources and portions of web pages, as well as the possibility of expressing attribution requirements (if any) motivate the exploration of a new licensing microformat.

The licensing microformat explorations are based on a licensing microformat discussion on 2006-10-05 between Tantek Çelik (Technorati) and Mike Linksvayer (Creative Commons) with a focus on the attribution requirements of Creative Commons licenses. The whiteboard results of those discussions was captured in a photograph which is posted on Flickr.
