The terms dcterms:rightsHolder and dcterms:accessRights are "imported" 
from Dublin Core into the Darwin Core record-level vocabulary.  I am 
interested in them for two reasons: there are several issues with the 
use of those terms as RDF predicates, and they differ from the terms 
suggested for use in rights management in the draft Audubon Core 
vocabulary.  What I am wondering is how widely are they actually used in 
databases by our community?  If you maintain a database, do you use them?
