Hi, Hillel and Michael,

I would like to participate in this conversation, if that's okay.  This area of the application has not had close scrutiny since when the functional specifications were first drafted.  So I am glad to see you two bringing some attention to it.

Hi Mike,
Your email is incredibly timely! We're thinking about very similar things and I'd love to talk more in detail about your use cases and see where they might align with ours.
An additional approach we've discussed is more closely aligning Rights statements in AS with PREMIS, so that they're PREMIS-compliant rather than PREMIS-ish.
I'd be happy to set up a call with you (and whoever else is interested) to talk through this a little more and see how we can coordinate!

Greetings, all; we've been exploring the rights statement module in ASpace as part of our ASpace-Archivematica grant project and had some questions.  A lot of questions, to be more precise...

Is anyone currently using (or planning to use) rights statements associated with archival objects and/or digital objects?

If yes to the above, would this be in conjunction with conditions governing access/use statements?

We've been exploring the wonderful world of the Yale container plugin; the ability to add start/end dates for restrictions and identify types of restrictions encompasses some of the basic features of the rights statements.

We've also been working with Artefactual Systems to explore how Archivematica PREMIS rights information maps to the ASpace rights statements.  It appears that the latter are 'PREMIS-like' but not really PREMIS compliant...  which has brought us to kick around the idea that PREMIS rights might be most appropriate to record in the Archivematica AIP METS (and passed along to a repository) instead of trying to do some fancy crosswalking into ASpace.

Any thoughts/ideas would be most gratefully appreciated.  Thanks!
