How to: Register a work as a copyright info provider

From SafeCreativeWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Safe Creative partners can register third party works as copyright information providers. This can be useful, for example, for a library to register works in the public domain. Such works can be submitted to the Safe Creative Copyright Registry services to take advantage of its search and semantic capabilities.

To register a work as a copyright information provider, work.register component must be called with userinformer=1

Authors names must be provided in the multivalue parameter: authorN, so you can provide more than one author as author1, author2, etc.

Author names have the following syntax:

FirstName|MiddleName|LastName 

First and last names are required. Middle name may be empty.

Copyright holders names are provided through parameter rightsholderN in the same way.

Example
