Name
watermark
Schema
rulib
Definition
This is a parent element that provides information into content that can be used for many purposes, such as rights (creation and ownership), copyright, and conditions of use. Watermarks may be imbedded in an area of a digital file that is imperceptible to the content user, but detectible with watermark recognition applications. Watermarks may also be affixed legibly to a digital file as an overlay or attached to a file as a caption.

watermark has the following components:
  • Subelements:
    • type
    • note
Usage Note
Watermarks impact the user experience and may be used to track subsequent use of a resource. The presence of a watermark should always be documented, particularly since it may be imperceptible. Resources without a watermark may be documented within the subelement 'type' as 'none,' or this parent element and subelements may simply be left blank. It is possible to have more than one watermark. Currently, for more than one watermark, document the digital, imperceptible watermark over visible captions or overlays and explain the presence of 2 or more watermarks in the 'note' subelement.
