Issue 101. Scope Note E73 to contain Multimedia Objects 
http://cidoc.ics.forth.gr/crm_issues.html#is101

Proposal
TG to explicitly mention multimedia objects and reference Jane Hunter's mpeg
7 paper in extension to scope note for Information Object (E73).


CURRENT SCOPE NOTE:
Scope Note: An identifiable immaterial item, which constitutes a unit for
documentation and has an objectively recognizable structure. 
Examples: data sets, images, texts, procedure prescriptions. It does not
include types, ideas etc. 


PROPOSED REVISED SCOPE NOTE:
Scope Note: An identifiable immaterial item, such as a process or a digital
object, that constitutes a unit for documentation and has an objectively
recognizable structure. It does not include conceptual items such as types,
ideas etc.

Examples: data sets, images, texts, multimedia objects, procedure
prescriptions, computer program code, algorithms, mathematical formulae.

Note: The CIDOC CRM does not attempt to model the technical attributes of
digital media in detail, as this is beyond its intended scope. However,
extensions to model museum multimedia in greater detail, such as those
described in Jane Hunter, "Combining the CIDOC CRM and MPEG-7 to Describe
Multimedia in Museums" [1], are both appropriate and compatible.
