Question B: What legal information do judges and the parties have?

Judges only have 2nd instance resolutions.

Big corporations have concentrated knowledge.

Independent lawyers have dispersed knowledge.

So, let us publish our writings and 1st instance resolutions.

Clark & Parsia: Another Reason Semantic Web Kicks Ass:

«We didn't have any meetings»

«In other words, the whole affair from our perspective was entirely uncoordinated, which is another way (to a first approximation) of saying that it was cheap and easy».

Aknowledgments

A Antonio Lafuente, alma mater del Laboratorio del Procomún. A Josema Alonso, por explicarme y hacer comprensibles cuestiones que parecían imposibles. A todos los integrantes de Medialab Prado, por hacer posible el Laboratorio del Procomún. A todos los que acuden al Laboratorio y enseñan lo que saben hacer. A mis maestros de escomposlinux. A los integrantes de la Judicatura española, quienes han defendido en sus resoluciones que un enlace no supone vulneración de la propiedad intelectual, lo que permite una mayor seguridad jurídica en el desarrollo de la web semántica (el elemento predicado del triplete -sujeto, predicado, objeto- no vulnera la propiedad intelectual). Y a todos aquellos que vierten desinteresadamente sus conocimientos dentro y fuera de la Red.
