Hi Steve,
Dublin Core does not itself have any element for depicting Patent information,
however a workaround is to use the relator terms as depicted in http://www.loc.gov/loc.terms/relators/PTH.
complete list of relator terms - http://lcweb2.loc.gov/cocoon/loc.terms/relators/dc-relators.html
more info - http://dublincore.org/usage/documents/relators/
ps-  the other elements , which i guess can also be translated as below
country can be the dc:coverage spatial
patent number can be an dc:identifier

I’ve been asked to add patents to our submissions to DSpace, and this raises a question:  where in Dublin core do I put the patent details? Specifically, I have “country”, “owner” and “patent number”, and I’m not at all sure where I should put them.
I could of course create new elements/qualifiers to hold these, but …
If anyone else has done anything with patents, I’d like to know what element/qualifiers you used for these fields.
