Yes, I define "things" like in CIDOC class E70 "Thing"
http://www.cidoc-crm.org/crm-concepts/#E70 which comprises "intellectual
products" and "physical things".

True, they are not physical things, but still "things". CIDOC
differentiates between E70 "Thing" and E18 "Physical Thing".
Sorry for citing the CIDOC formalisms, it's just for the sake of
clarity. Colloquial language often fails to express the abstract meaning
