I agree with you. This should be configurable depending on languages environment of the institution which is running Sakai. Then, two problems arises:
a) Where to place copyright types and their potential translation.
b) Which should be the default language when no translation is available.
To point a)
I would suggest sakai.properties:
copyright.languages.count = 3
copyright.languages.1 = es
copyright.languages.2 = ca
copyright.languages.3 = en
copyrighttype.es.<type1> = bla, bla, bla
copyrighttype.es.<type2> = bla, bla, bla
copyrighttype.es.<typeN> = bla, bla, bla
copyrighttype.ca.<type1> = ble, ble, ble
copyrighttype.ca.<type2> = ble, ble, ble
copyrighttype.ca.<typeN> = ble, ble, ble
copyrighttype.en.<type1> = bli, bli, bli
copyrighttype.en.<type2> = bli, bli, bli
copyrighttype.en.<typeN> = bli, bli, bli
Or place this information in a xml file and process it in a proper way.
To point b) a copyright.default.language parameter can be used.
Hope this helps. Of course, any other feedback will be highly appreciated. S2U group is working very hard on these two issues and would like to get community feedback as soon as possible to find an acceptable solution to them.
Thank you very much in advance.

Hope the licensing WG, or others, can help with this or get some
knowledgeable legal help.
AFAICT, law is not easy to translate and therefore translating copyright
is a challenge.
AFAICT, any text with legal intent only has value if it's written in an
official language for the country/region.
I think regions or countries that have only one language for law should
only use a set of copyright types in this language.
I think regions or countries that have several legal languages, and I
think it may be the case for Província de València/Provincia de Valencia
where UPV is, should be able to use more than one set.
I think using more than one set should be a setting that is off by default.

> Hi all,
> I would like to discuss about https://jira.sakaiproject.org/browse/SAK-17692 and https://jira.sakaiproject.org/browse/SAK-17694 that are related with copyright types internationalization. At these two JIRAs are patches to fix them and, from my point of view, they can be commited as they are backward compatible. Anyway, as copyright and DRM are a sensitive issue, I would like to have your feedback before to procceed. Thus, I will appreciate any comment or additional testing.
> Basically, you can follow this guidelines when testing it:
> 1. Set your languages preferences to X.
> 2. Create a resource in sakai.resources and set copyright status (in language X).
> 3. Set your languages preferences to Y.
> 4. Access the created resource. Copyright status should be set to the same value (but translated) or, if the transalation is not available, to the original text (in language X).
> Thank you very much for your collaboration.
