Unless the annotation describes the publisher then it is redundant to assert the PublisherDescription was created by the publisher. With the meaning you are giving PublisherDescription, nobody but the publisher can have created it. Y'all are using PublisherDescription rather than ContentDescription. ContentDescription could in fact have a meaningful, non-redundant creator. PublisherDescription should describe the publisher in one way or another. Semantics but isn't that what we're dealing with here?

Subject: Re: [BIBFRAME] BIBFRAME annotation: (annotator vs. body creator)

Would it help to define an annotation property "bodyCreator".

  So if the publisher created the publisher description and the library of congress asserted the annotation:

http://annotation

a

bf:PublisherDescription ;

                                             .................



bf:annotates

http://instance ;



bf:annotationAssertedBy

(Library of Congress)



bf:BodyCreator

(publisher)


Or if a third party created the publisher description:

http://annotation

a

bf:PublisherDescription ;

                                             .................



bf:annotates

http://instance ;



bf:annotationAssertedBy

(Library of Congress)



bf:BodyCreator

(third party)
