Hi,

at the moment the textual definition reads:
"Relating a legal person to an organization in the case where the legal person has a role as member of the organization."
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_personality legal person are explicitly NOT living (real, natural) persons like you and me.

In that light I think we change the definition of this class (assuming that we agree on the fact that both legal persons and natural person can be members of organizations). At the moment we restrict membership in organizations exclusively to non-natural persons. (In the textual definition that is. The domain is not specified for this relation.

Bill Hogan proposed the following definition to me which I'd like to submit (with his agreement, of course):
"Relating a legal person or actual person to an organization in the
case where the legal person or person has a role as member of the
organization"

Thanks,
Mathias
