Tech Roadmap

PDM Chooser

The PDM will have a "chooser" for generating mark metadata. This will live at http://creativecommons.org/choose/pdmark [tentative]. This will be a two-page chooser, similar to the main license chooser. This will require changes to cc.license as well as cc.engine.

The first page will consist of:

  • An introductory paragraph, to be supplied by legal
  • The following fields:
    • Work name
    • Creator
    • Curator (this label will probably change)
    • Curator URL
    • Norms URL
    • Do you waive any incidental rights under CC0? (true/false)

The second page will be a "normal" results page.

Metadata (XHTML + RDFa)


<a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/mark/1.0/"> <img src="http://i.creativecommons.org/l/mark/1.0/88x31.png" style="border-style: none;" alt="Public Domain Mark" /> </a>

We'll be rolling out a visually distinct identity for public domain deeds (as opposed to license deeds).

PDM Deed

PDM will have a deed that optionally shows metadata from the referrer. See http://labs.creativecommons.org/demos/pd/ for mockups of with and without.

CC0 Deed

The CC0 deed will be updated at the same time with a refreshed visual look that and with support for norms.

Metadata Scraper

The metadata scraper will need to be updated to support extraction of information for PD Mark and CC0. This includes:

  • work information
  • attribution/citation statement
  • norms statement

It may make sense to add another method to the scraper that knows how to extract/format for public domain deeds

Deed Javascript

The deed javascript has been dramatically simplified with the rollout of the new scraper. We'll need javascript that meshes with the Metadata Scraper call above for PDM/CC0 deeds.
