Abstract: Web mashups have become one of the most powerful features of the Web 2.0 revolution. Though the sources of the mashups have access control over their content, the lack of proper Rights Management over the content given out by the sources leads to many problems. Recent blocking of Yahoo! Pipes' HTTP headers by Craigslist can be cited as one of the example problems caused by lack of a proper Rights Management framework in the Web. To overcome this problem, this thesis proposes a framework called the '<License Server />' that can be used to assert rights over content and also reason over rights scenarios. The framework is a cloud service that fits within the current Internet infrastructure without modification. This thesis also considers other problems related to usage management in current web-based mashups environments and describes how the <License Server /> can solve them.
