In response to a thread on Aaron Swartz's get-theinfo list, I
resurrected my RDF data for U.S. corporate ownership derived from
publicly filed records to the U.S. Securities and Exchange commission's
EDGAR database.

It's 1 million triples, HTTP and SPARQL-accessible. More here (including 
source code, data dump, and examples):

The records establish board membership, officer positions, and 
10%-or-more ownership relations. Note that people can enter into any of 
those relations with corporations, but additionally corporations can be 
10% owners of other corporations. The records exist at time points when 
the interest (i.e. stock ownership) of an individual or corporation that 
is in one of the relations above with a corporation changes. It is thus 
possible (and likely) that individuals who are no longer in such a 
relation with a corporation are still listed as such in this data.

Here are some starting points:

News Corp (owner of FOX, WSJ, and other media things):

Rupert Murdoch (media mogul behind News Corp):

There are no links to other data sets.
