Rights Statements in the CDR

The CDR offers several rights statements that you can choose from when depositing a work.

  • In Copyright (default) 
  • No Known Copyright 
  • Copyright Undetermined 
  • No Copyright-United States 

Rights statements indicate the copyright status of the work. They differ from licenses, which show what actions the rights holder will allow others to take with their work.
More information about retaining your rights and determining your rights can be found in the Library’s “Author Rights and Publishing Contracts” guide. Questions regarding rights statements can be referred to the Scholarly Communications Office
