[bioontology-support] BioPortal: BAO 2.0 (Ontology ID 1533)

Our use of the word "Licensed" here is confusing. It is not what you want.

What you to do is make the visibility public. Then just please just send
us by email the license information that you want to use for each ontology
and we will get it up there. This capability is not there in the UI (yet).
You can, and many others have done, embed the license information in the
description text field.

BAO2.0 should have public viewing, but we want to add the License
Information text:  "This ontology is made available under the Creative
Commons Attribution License Version 3".

Under Edit Metadata for BioAssay Ontology (version 2.0), the ONTOLOGY
VIEWING RESTRICTIONS is public.  If I change it to Licensed, I can add the
text but the visibility is Licensed.  To view the Ontology users need to
login.  We want BAO's visibility to be public and add the license
information text, similar to other Ontologies

Best regards,
