Decision on proposal for new term 'copyright'

Title: Decision on proposal for new term "copyright"
Shepherd: Rebecca Guenther
Identifier: http://dublincore.org/usage/decisions/2002/2002-02.copyright.shtml
Date: 2002-07-13
Description: The decision documented here refers to a proposal
                  considered at the Usage Board meeting of May 2002
                  in Bath. This document is pointed to from
                  the official list of Usage Board Decisions [1].

Text of proposal: http://dublincore.org/usage/meetings/2002/05/copyright-date_prop.html

Decision: Accept with status "conforming" (with the name "dateCopyrighted")

Reason: This term is not clearly relevant to cross-domain resource discovery but conforms to Dublin Core grammatical principles. The name of the term was changed from that proposed because 1) "Date of a statement of copyright" is arguably not a property of the resource copyrighted, but a property of the statement of copyright; and 2) for consistency with the naming convention for other date refinements.
