> A colleague forwarded me this thread about DOIs.   DOI (we do not pronounce
> it "doy" but use the three letter acronym, D.O.I.) = digital object
> identifiers are persistent, semantically interoperable, identifiers for
> entities of interest in intellectual property transactions (irrespective of
> the rights model used).  Currently assigned to items of content (journal
> articles, scientific data sets, government documents etc) but also capable
> of assignment to licences, parties, etc.   DOIs are in use now (approx 13
> million assigned to date).
> 
> Our web site (www.doi.org <http://www.doi.org>) has more information.  Links
> to a series of overviews at <http://www.doi.org/about_the_doi.html>
> We would be happy to discuss the application of DOIs to licensed materials
> in the Creative Commons space.  Our annual meeting takes place in London on
> June 22 and we'd be glad to invite someone from the CC community to
> participate (nominations?).  Feedback and comment are welcome from all.

> The metadata CC list may be particularly interested in our use of
> ontology/data dictionary concepts, described in one of our factsheets
> (<http://www.doi.org/factsheets.html> ). We were part of the group which
> developed the Rights Data Dictionary which has just become a formal ISO MPEG
> Standard (MPEG 21 Part 6) and we are the proposed registration authority for
> terms in that dictionary.    
> 
> Esther Dyson's release 1.0 article on internet registries will also be of
> interest: <http://dx.doi.org/10.1340/309registries>
