Issue 408: Rights Model Enriched

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 

Posted by George Bruseker on 13/3/2019

Dear all,

As part of the work on CRMSoc, I have been looking at the possible extension of information around rights in order to make the model more robust and suitable to actual needs. The proposed modelling has been created in dialogue with the previous documented issues regarding this question and also in conversation with several other SIG members including Nicola, Rob, Thanasis and Francesco amongst others.
The proposal to extend the modelling around rights relates back to issues: 172, 330, 335, and 343. I propose to open the discussion of this during the upcoming SIG without necessarily wishing to close it. In the meantime we have had contact with Rights who are interested to contribute their expertise on this question and would likewise be able to attend the SIG in Paris in June. Nevertheless, it seems like it would be good to do the groundwork in Heraklion on the basic issues, so that we could hopefully proceed to create a more useful modelling of this topic in the near future.
Current Proposal: 

In the 43rd joint meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9; 36th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, the sig reviewed GB homework and discussed about the adoption of the following classes and properties to CRMsoc

(1) socExx Jurisdiction (subclass of E4 Period).
(2) socPxx has governing body [D: socExx Jurisdiction, R: some subclass of E74 Group, such as “sovereign people” or E39 Actor
(3) pxx has temporal validity [D: E30 Right, E52 Time-Span],

Also the sig decided to 

  • Activity Plans and Rights to be discussed together
  • The issues described in the issues 172, 330, 335, 343 are to be merged into 408
  • The deprecated FRBR classes F51 Pursuit and F52 Name Use Activity to be introduced to CRMsoc in a new issue (issue 413).
