Each of the three documents says:

 2002 Lucent Technologies, Inc. Frank van Harmelen, and Ian Horrocks. All Rights Reserved.

If these are working documents of the W3C Web Ontology WG, I'd suggest
that following http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/WebOnt/charter#L409 the
claim that "all rights reserved" might be counter productive. Consider the
situation we'd be in if every email sent to this list had "(c)2002 me, all
rights reserved" attached to it.

Should we consider these three documents an offering from
Lucent/Harmalen/Horrocks to the working group, or a summary and synthesis
of the group's collective design work?
