comment Using a license without a year value
Copyright does not last forever. If you don't state when it takes effect, no one can determine when it ends; this might leave you open to some kind of legal challenge. If this is a maintenance burden, can you find away to update the year automatically on check-in?

comment What's the point with HATEOAS on the client-side?
You're right, but that's not the point. HATEOAS keeps you from having to construct the URIs for the links in the page on the client.
