Media Value Chain Ontology

Dear colleagues,

As announced a few weeks ago, please find enclosed some information on
our work on a Media Value Chain Ontology.

As it was also mentioned before, the ISO/IEC MPEG Committee (ISO/IEC
JTC1/SC29/WG11) has started a new part of MPEG-21, Part 19, on a Media
Value Chain Ontology (MVCO), that is currently out for CD ballot. If
things run smoothly, as expected, the Final Committee Draft (FCD) will
be produced in the next MPEG meeting at the beginning of February.

The document we are attaching, mainly written by Víctor Rodríguez, shows
the main concepts and details of the MVCO, in which we have been working
since several years.

The purpose of distributing this information to the Media Annotations WG
is twofold. First, to keep you informed about related work and, second,
to raise the issue that going into details about Intellectual Property
concepts and roles is probably not needed in this WG, since it could be
enough just to link to the MVCO when needed, taking advantage of the
fact that MVCO will be an easily referable stable International Standard.

You could discuss this further with Víctor in the F2F meeting in a few
