Creative Commons Metadata Streaming

This is interesting. Something like this could be used
to implement some of the things we've been talking about
regarding re-distributability of videoblog feeds.

Subject: CC-OMS now available (metadata streaming)

Dear all,

We are very glad to announce the first release of the
Open Media Streaming (OMS) software suite
with support for CCPL metadata.

The streaming server (Fenice) now may send licensing information
to the client (NeMeSI), which displays it graphically to the user
using the CC logo and the CC icons,
and then take the appropriate action
(i.e. accept or refuse the stream depending on
its license, as specified by the user).

More information available below or
at the OMS web site,

Please feel free to distribute and publicize.

Suggestions, questions, etc. are -of course- very welcome.

Best regards,

Juan Carlos

Please note that the CC stuff in the NeMeSI source code is in very alpha
stage: no more than IETF's-style "running code" to test a
soon-to-be-released specification proposal for streaming Creative
Commons licensing meta-data over RTSP/RTP protocols.
