And note that mods:accessCondition maps to dc:rights and is intended for right statements that indicate rights to access or use the resource (although the MODS element name implies a narrower definition). But many rights statements are about access or use.

According to the MODS tag library, accesscondition is for "information about restrictions imposed on access to a resource."  An explicit statement that there *are* no restrictions is definitely information about restrictions, so I'd say that this is exactly the right place for it :)
