11 intellectualRights

This element is found at this location (XPath):

<intellectualRights> are controlled at the source, however it is recommended that data be released with as few restrictions as possible. Each data package should contain a data access policy, plus a description of any deviation from the general policy specific for this particular package (e.g. restricted-access packages). The timeframe for release should be included as well.

Context: If no <intellectualRights> element is included EDI will insert text that releases data under “CC-0” (shown in example). The LTER Network-wide default policy is “CC-BY”. Please consult those organizations for more information and more details.
