Subject: RE: [legaldocml] Re: [akomantoso-xml] FRBRcountry

Hi guys,


Following on from this earlier discussion around the usage of the FRBRcountry element in terms of its use for non-country jurisdictions (e.g. California), as I understand it this is to be used to indicate "the country or jurisdiction to be used in the work-level URI of this document".
In the case of UK Acts, they are created by the UK Parliament and will have jurisdiction over England but may not have jurisdiction over Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. I think this can apply at the overall Act level but the differences in jurisdiction are often within Acts with sections only applying to e.g. England and Wales.
An example of this is http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2000/22 with the Parts of the Act applying to different jurisdictions:
- Part I: England and Wales
- Part II: England and Wales
- Part III: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland
- Part IV: England and Wales
- Part V: England, Wales and Scotland
- Part VI: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland
And even with these Parts there are sections with even more granularity in terms of jurisdiction.
How does Akoma Ntoso deal with this kind of complicated situation, where different sections of an Act have differing jurisdictions? I assume the FRBRcountry element would need to be defined as gb/uk with additional metadata to indicate the jurisdictional information throughout the document.

Here is an earlier clarification of such a case from monica :

The FRBRcountry element prescribes ISO 3166-1 values for the country or the jurisdiction. In Monica's sample for California, she uses a value of "us" for the value of this element. I have a bit of a problem with this. The jurisdiction of this law is California, not the US. That California is part of the US isn't particularly relevent to the document. Shouldn't the FRBRcountry element really identify the jurisdicition that the law applies to - and then be able to handle jurisdictions that aren't countries?
