The provenance (“asserter”) of Rights declarations should be made explicit.

In a distributed data network like the internet, the provenance of Rights declarations must be explicit if systems or users are to be able to trust it (or not). The asserter of a statement of Right may or may not be the same Party as the rightsholder. Without the ability to identify the asserter of a Right (with or via an ISNI), there is no basis for secure automated identification of Rights in the network, or for the identification and management of conflicts (see target 9).
