Rijksmuseum case study: Sharing free, high quality images without restrictions makes good things happen

Girl in white kimono, George Hendrik Breitner, 1894; CC0

Yesterday Europeana published a great case study documenting the experiences of the Dutch Rijksmuseum in opening up access to their collection of digital public domain images. The case study was written by Joris Pekel, community coordinator for cultural heritage at the Europeana Foundation. Over the last few years, Europeana has worked with the Rijksmuseum in order to make available at the highest quality possible images of public domain artworks held by the museum.

The report discusses the Rijksmuseum’s initial apprehension to sharing these high quality images of public domain works. The museum originally planned to share the digital reproductions of public domain works under an open license, such as the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC BY). But after some convincing by organizations that advocate for unrestricted access to the public domain, the Rijksmuseum began to open its collections more by choosing to use the CC0 Public Domain Dedication for the digital reproductions.

The Rijksmuseum began to experiment with how it would offer high quality reproductions of the public domain artworks. The museum adopted a mission-driven approach, and staff understood the opportunity to showcase the best of the museum’s collection as a promotional tool. The marketing department argued that “…The core goal of the museum is to get the collection out and known to the public as much as possible…[and] the digital reproduction of an item would pique public interest in it, leading them to buy tickets to the museum to see the real deal.” The Rijksmuseum also realized that by releasing high quality digital reproductions of works out of copyright, it could help educate the public by providing true-color images and accurate metadata about the works.

Instead of worrying that making available high quality digital reproductions of public domain artwork for free would destroy a piece of the museum’s revenue stream, the Rijksmuseum initially adopted a hybrid approach. They made images available in two sizes: .jpg images at approximately 4500×4500 pixels were free, while the huge 200MB master .tiff files were made available for €40. The museum saw a steady increase in revenue from image sales, but eventually decided to discontinue the tiered offerings. Since October 2013 the Rijksmuseum has been releasing their highest quality images for free.

The Rijksmuseum has found a way to support broad access to its rich collection of cultural heritage resources. And it’s done so in such as way that promotes interest by new audiences, recuperates costs, and upholds the principles of supporting unrestricted access to the digital public domain.

EU anbefaler Creative Commons-lisenser for offentlig sektor

Planet CC -

Denne uken publiserte EU-kommisjonen nye retningslinjer for bruk av standard-lisenser i samband med publisering og gjenbruk av data og informasjon fra offentlig sektor. I disse anbefalingene oppfordres medlemsstatene eksplisitt til å bruke standardiserte åpne lisenser som Creative Commons for å lette bruk og gjenbruk av data og informasjon fra offentlig sektor. Samtidig advarer kommisjonen mot at det utvikles egne, spesielle lisenser. Slike lisenser kan gjøre det vanskelig å gjenbruke informasjon fra offentlig sektor og få til samvirke på tvers av grenser og sektorer. Kommisjonen skriver: En rekke lisenser, som følger prinsippene om «åpenhet» slik disse er beskrevet av Open Knowledge Foundation for å fremme ubegrenset gjenbruk av online-innhold, er tilgjengelig på nettet. De er blitt oversatt til mange språk, oppdateres sentralt og er allerede i utstrakt bruk over hele verden. Åpne standard-lisenser, som for eksempel de nyeste Creative Commons-lisenser (version 4.0), vil tillate gjenbruk av informasjon fra offentlig sektor uten behov for å utvikle og oppdatere skreddersydde lisenser på nasjonalt eller subnasjonalt nivå.

淺談公眾出資研究與美國FIRST法案

Planet CC -

所謂的公眾出資成果(publicly-funded)指得是,政府運用人民納稅之金錢而進行的研究、分析等產出的成果,例如,給予大學教授研究經費,而教授們的學術研究成果即屬之。從邏輯上而言,公眾出資研究成果這類的資源應該要提供給大眾,然而,事實上這卻不是一般常見的狀況。實際上,在大眾被授權接近這些素材前通常他們需要支付多次費用。以學術期刊之發表為例,許多大學的學者接受政府的資助來開展他們的學術研究,而這些資助實則由納稅人買單,當學者完成研究並將他們發表在營利性期刊上,這些期刊雜誌業者便借由收取訂閱費用的方式回頭銷售使用接觸的管道給各大學。顯而易見的,大多人皆會認為這並非一種對大眾的投資最有效率的使用方式。這是因為這些業者希望他們的商業利益能夠永遠維持並保持其商業模式。然而,不論從邏輯上,甚至道德觀點而言,大眾都應該要有機會接近經由其納稅的錢所資助而得之研究成果。閱讀全文 2014-07-25T07:40:50Z sunlight

EU Kommissionen anbefaler Creative Commons licenser til offentlige data

CC Danmark -

I sidste uge udsendte EU Kommissionen en række guidelines for udgivelse og genanvendelse af offentlige data og information i Europa. Blandt disse anbefalinger opfordres der eksplicit til at medlemsstaterne bør anvende standardiserede åbne licenser såsom Creative Commons-værktøjerne. Således skriver de:

“Several licences that comply with the principles of ‘openness’ described by the Open Knowledge Foundation to promote unrestricted re-use of online content, are available on the web. They have been translated into many languages, centrally updated and already used extensively worldwide. Open standard licences, for example the most recent Creative Commons (CC) licences (version 4.0), could allow the re-use of PSI without the need to develop and update custom-made licences at national or sub-national level. Of these, the CC0 public domain dedication is of particular interest. As a legal tool that allows waiving copyright and database rights on PSI, it ensures full flexibility for re-users and reduces the complications associated with handling numerous licences, with possibly conflicting provisions.”
