Proposal text: http://dublincore.org/usage/meetings/2002/10/acquired.shtml
The DCMI Usage Board decided that there was an insufficient semantic distinction between the existing DC term Date Accepted and the proposed term Acquired. This insufficient semantic distinction raises the high probability of confusion in the application of the term. The Board suggested that the DC term dateAccepted (http://purl.org/dc/terms/dateAccepted) be used instead, and, if desired, "Date Acquired" might be used as the term label in an application profile.
