[Archivesspace_Users_Group] copyright/licensing statements in finding aids

We would like to apply a Creative Commons license to the resource records we create in and finding aids we generate from ArchivesSpace.  Is anyone else already doing this, and if so, where are you entering that information in ArchivesSpace?

I had originally thought of putting that information somewhere in the Finding Aid Data section of Resource records (the Finding Aid Note field really would be the only possible place), but the Finding Aid Data section info does not show up in the AS public interface, and based on the wireframes, it does not appear that will change in the new PUI.  We could put it in a General Note labeled something like "Finding Aid Usage" or "Finding Aid Rights", which would show up in the PUI.

Alternately, if you are putting a copyright statement in your finding aids generated by AS, where are you entering that information?

It is my understanding that neither EAD2 nor EAD3 have field specifically designated for this kind of information.
