Issue 94: Position of E72 Legal Object

Starting Date: 
2002-02-20
Working Group: 
1
Status: 
Done
Closing Date: 
2002-07-03
Background: 

The Position of Legal Object in the CRM seems not to serve the purpose it was intended for. The total of items, which could be subject to a right seems to be out of scope of the CRM. The items which are typically subject to rights in a museum are Information Objects and Physical Stuff.

Current Proposal: 

I propose therefore to put Legal Object under Stuff, which makes the fundamental facets by far clearer.

MD 20/6/2002

Outcome: 

Put Legal Object under Stuff, which makes the fundamental facets by far clearer. Wider interpretations of Legal Objects are out of practical scope.

Proposal accepted, Copenhagen 3/7/2002.
