Copyright

Post by roedygr » Tue Mar 04, 2014 6:04 pm

I got a message saying meta copyright is no longer kosher
It said to use dcterms.rights and dcterms.copyrighted

I looked at htmlvalidator.com pages for examples on how to use them, but you do not use them.

I googled without satisfaction. One example is worth a paragraph of description.

Thanks.

This messages is about HTML5 and "old" copyright meta tags like this:

Code: Select all

	<meta name="copyright" content="AI Internet Solutions LLC">
I've updated the validator message that is generated by the above to:

Remove this meta tag and use one or more of these metadata names instead: "dcterms.dateCopyrighted" for the date of the copyright (like <meta name="dcterms.dateCopyrighted" content="2014">), "dcterms.rights" for information about the rights held in and over the resource (like <meta name="dcterms.rights" content="statement or information about copyright">), and/or "dcterms.rightsHolder" to specify the person or organization owning or managing the rights (like <meta name="dcterms.rightsHolder" content="person or organization owning or managing rights over the resource">). Furthermore, "copyright" is not a recognized metadata name. Visit http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/document-met ... data-names and http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/MetaExtensions for more information.

It's long but it should be more helpful.

There is some more information here:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6665 ... d-in-html5

And here:
http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/MetaExtensions

So some examples are:

Code: Select all

	<meta name="dcterms.dateCopyrighted" content="2014">
	<meta name="dcterms.rights" content="statement or information about copyright">
	<meta name="dcterms.rightsHolder" content="person or organization owning or managing rights over the resource">

I added tags like this:
<meta name="dcterms.dateCopyrighted" content="2008">
<meta name="dcterms.rightsHolder" content="Canadian Mind Products">
<link rel="schema.dcterms" href="http://purl.org/dc/terms/">

It now passes. In the explanation I would use "ABC Corp" instead of descriptive wording.
IT also might help to add some line breaks.

Thanks. I've changed it to "ABCXYZ Corp" but validator messages are not designed to contain line breaks so I can't add those.
