Subject Re: Legal Notice in Individual SKOS Glossaries Missing

Dominique Hazael-Massieux,

It would be good if we kept the dc:rights for human-readable copyright notice, and eventually
use dcterms:license for the license URL. So, the rdf:Description with an empty rdf:about wouldn't
be needed and instead, the following properties could be added to the main rdf:Description.

<dcterms:license xmlns:dcterms=""  rdf:resource=""/>
<dc:rights>Copyright &#169; [THE RELEVANT COPYRIGHT STATEMENT]</dc:rights>

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of the Forrest community.
