Creative Commons historically ran a metadata validator (also developed in response to a challenge) which allowed users to verify they had made the correct assertions about their work. Since moving to RDFa, the validator has become less relevant and is in need of a major overhaul (perhaps even rewrite).

A successful implementation will:

  • support all recommended methods, historical and current, of embedding CC license information in a web page (see the file format page for more information)
  • alert users that embedding using historical methods has been deprecated
  • support making assertions about embedded objects
