Hi Peter:

It would make sense to make a license of your ontology a subclass of


since that really is a class representing specifications of access  
rights to a resource (with "Sell" and "LeaseOut" bying very generic,  
retail-oriented instances).

So any kind of more specific rights bundles should be instances of  
that class, too.
