[Crm-sig] Intellectual Property Rights and E30 / E72

Dear all,

In the CRM, Rights are associated with E72_Legal_Object, which is the parent class of Physical Thing and Symbolic Object.
This does not allow for works that are conceptual but not symbolic, such as the plot of a movie or other E89s or E28s to have any legal status.

Given that intellectual property does have some legal protection such as patents (a patent document has symbols, but the protection is for the idea described by that document, not the document itself), should it instead be the parent of Physical Thing and Conceptual Object?

Many thanks for your thoughts on this,
