Adrian, I agree with your un-ease about records and collections and
will add to that... because linked data is about individual
statements, not records. It is even more difficult to imagine adding a
license to a single statement that says:
"As You Like It" "was written by" "William Shakespeare"
Quoting Adrian Pohl <adrian.pohl at okfn.org>:
