Hello all,

I wish to know the community's informed opinions about any concerns for 
using ODRL to model Consent for GDPR.

To elaborate:

Consent can be modeled as the Data Subject providing permissions for 
purposes or activities for their (specific) personal data. ODRL provides 
a systematic way to model such permissions and prohibitions.

However, to date, I am not aware of any work attempting to model consent 
using ODRL (that has published their approach). There has been use of 
RDF(S) and OWL [1,2] to model these concepts using terms which ODRL 
(seemingly) already provides.

Having not worked with ODRL before, it would be valuable to know the 
community's thoughts on using what is essentially a rights language to 
express consent as a legal policy using the vocabulary.

In terms of DPVCG, this discussion is essentially evaluating an existing 
ontology (ODRL) for a particular use-case (representation of given consent).
