Pierre-Paul Lemyre, Director of Business Development of Lexum, Speaking at NISO on the Semantic Web and Rights Management

On February 19, 2014, the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) is hosting a virtual Conference on “The Semantic Web Coming of Age: Technologies and Implementations”. Pierre-Paul Lemyre, one of the founders of Lexum and Director of Business Development will be delivering a presentation titled “Sharing Information on the Semantic Web: The Need for a Global License Repository”.

This presentation underlines the importance of adequate rights management mechanisms in the success of recent online trends that have initiated the distributed production of information (namely open source software and Web 2.0). The position taken is that the efficient management of rights is one of the challenges facing the semantic web and that the creation of a Global License Repository may be part of the solution.

The online conference is open to NISO members and non-members alike. Register to attend.
