I read through a CRM mapping of the basic Norwegian photo documentation
standard where ownership and intellectual rights where mapped by P51 and
Ownership, event oriented
E18 Physical Thing <- P24 Transferred Title of <- E8 Acquisition Event
-> P22 Transferred title to -> E39Actor
E18 Physical Thing -> P51 has former or current owner -> E39 Actor
Intellectual rights, no event
Full path in CRM:
E72 Legal Object ->P104 Is subject to -> E30Right <- P75Posesses <- E39Actor
E72 Legal Object->P105Right held by-> E39Actor
According to the CRM one can only own physical stuff (thing forgive me).
One can only hold rights to abstracts/conceptual objects. This is ok.
One may also hold rights to physical stuff. Is it possible to imagine
ownership without a some kind of legal system? The scope note for E30
Right: "This class comprises legal privileges concerning material and
immaterial things or their derivatives". A fair interpretation of "legal
privileges" includes all types of ownership. So it not unnatural to use
P105 instead of P51. So should E8 Acquisition be replacedby /be a
subclass an "Acquisition of right" event or the properties adjusted?
