    Yes, as near as I can tell from the current terms of use, the EXTERNAL_COPYRIGHT_LINK (indeed, the entire SOURCE_ORGANIZATION table) can be ignored entirely. Perhaps some day the terms of use will be updated to explain when the EXTERNAL_COPYRIGHT_LINK is meaningful. In the mean time, I’ll disregard the SOURCE_ORGANIZATION table and any references to it. Thank you for your help.

    Thank you. You’ve clarified this a lot, and I’m still a bit confused about what to do when both LOINC.EXTERNAL_COPYRIGHT_NOTICE and LOINC.EXTERNAL_COPYRIGHT_LINK are populated.

    It sounds like EXTERNAL_COPYRIGHT_NOTICE is the only legally binding copyright information, and EXTERNAL_COPYRIGHT_LINK provides potentially useful additional information that should be ignored in the event of a conflict. Is that correct?

    Great! Does that mean the “EXTERNAL_COPYRIGHT_NOTICE” column of loinc.csv will be replaced by the the foreign key, or will there be two (possibly conflicting) sources of copyright information?
