Rights specify what is allowed to be done with the content by others, ranging from all retained by the author to being released in the public domain.
Rights are defined on a per subsite basis, and are displayed in all page footers for the subsite under Rights. The default setting is All reserved which means the copyright holder has total control over all applicable copyrights. To be less restrictive, this page allows defining the formal term for the rights, as a optional link if a URL to the description of the rights is also provided.
|2||Text URL||Current text and URL, and expand to edit them|
|3||✘||Delete the rights details for the locale|
If no text is specified for the master locale, the default is shown. If text for a non-master locale is also specified, it will be shown when viewed in that locale. If a URL is specified for the master locale, then the text will show as a link to the URL. If a non-master locale also has a URL specified, it is used for the link instead.
A common alternate copyright used is Creative Commons which should cover most variations of rights, like specifying how liberally content can be copied, and whether attribution is required. If wanting to release the content into the public domain, just specify text of Public Domain. No link need be provided. Note that none of this applies to content supplied with Smallsite Design, which is considered All reserved.
