PLUS License Data Format: XMP Reference

PLUS Version 1.2.1

The PLUS License Data Format ("LDF") is an ordered group of fields available for optional use in embedding and reading image license metadata in digital files and other documents. The LDF only contains information essential to the understanding of an image license. The LDF does not include other information about the image, such as captions, which can be embedded using IPTC. The LDF will be used by a broad range of licensors and licensees. It is not expected that any user will make use of the full range of fields. Each user will have full discretion in determining which fields will be used (or ignored) in that user's licensing workflow. The LDF is not a licensing interface, but is a metadata "schema" for an embedded image license. PLUS LDF will reside "under the hood" in a broad range of applications used in digital asset management, imaging and licensing, allowing users to easily access and read the license information associated with an image. In addition, PLUS LDF metadata will be accessed via PLUS "file info" panels or "property" dialogs in common applications.

A. Namespace

Namespace URI http://ns.useplus.org/ldf/xmp/1.0/
Namespace Prefix plus
Comments The use of the specified namespace-prefix is not mandatory but is highly recommended for interoperability. User interfaces showing PLUS properties must identify such properties as "PLUS" properties.

B. Properties

1. PLUS Version

XMP Property plus:Version
XMP Value Type Text
XMP Category External
Namespace URI http://ns.useplus.org/ldf/xmp/1.0/Version
Description The version number of the PLUS standards in place at the time of the transaction.

Cardinality 0..1
Format x.x.x
Example <plus:Version>1.2.0</plus:Version>
Notes
  1. Version is made up of three components: Major Version, Minor Version and Revision. Each of these is combined with periods to form a single version number (e.g. 1.2.3 means Major Version 1 Minor Version 2 Revision 3). A Major Version will be published every two years when the standards are reviewed. Minor Versions may be published in between where necessary and will require re-certification. Finally, Revisions are minor changes to the standards that do not require re-certification.

If Licensor and Licensee agree to maintain a PLUS License ID within in the image file name, license information may be more easily recovered in the event of metadata loss. In certain situations the Licensor may require that the metadata and/or file type be maintained.
