To ensure the right use of images, the catalogue owner first needs to clarify the image rights. If the legal situation of the images is specified in their metadata, the end user knows immediately how to re-use it.

Creative Commons Licences are very helpful if images should be available for free re-use.

We recommend the use of standardized legal notices using RightsStatements.org for images that cannot or should not be used with a Creative Commons Licence.
