Content Mining Manifesto
The Open Science Working Group has posted a draft manifesto demanding rights to mine digital resources where users have legitimate access to them. The manifesto asserts:
- Principle 1: Right of Legitimate Accessors to Mine. The right to read is the right to mine.
- Principle 2: Lightweight Processing Terms and Conditions. Users and providers should encourage machine processing.
- Principle 3: Use. Facts don’t belong to anyone.
