Content Space and IP: tools for creative reuse of digital cultural heritage

The Content Space contains information about licensing, rights labelling and associated new technical standards, guidelines on how to identify re-usable content, and legal advice and tools for the lawful re-use of digital content. An explicative video helps understanding the basic context.
