3.5.1.4 - The repository shall have policies in place to address liability and challenges to ownership/rights.

As described in Section 3.5.1, UC3 has secured and maintained agreements with institutions -- specifically, the UC Libraries -- that have deposited collections into our preservation service.  The Digital Assets Submission Agreement (DASA) and an associated Inventory (DASI) constitute the agreement.

The DASA includes the following terms:

  • Includes an indemnity statement that protects the University of California should any third-party rights infringement occur
  • Establishes the type of rights and license the institution is providing to CDL
  • The agreement does NOT transfer copyright to the CDL

In cases where ownership/rights of content in our preservation service are challenged, we will work with the depositor to remove (and in cases where content may be publicly-accessible, take-down) content, to comply with licensing or rights holder restrictions.

Prospectively, UC3 will be securing and maintaining a service level agreement with all institutions depositing content into Merritt.
