Abstract                : The guidelines in this guide are designed to satisfy the 
                          following aims: 
                          
                              1.Facilitate informed re-use decisions regarding 
                                ownership and conditions of use -
                          
                                A user discovers an item they propose to use/re-use. 
                             
                             What information should be included in the
                                meta-data so the user, their project manager / 
                                solution team manager and CiTR management can
                                make an informed decision about the proposed re-use, so:
                          
                                     -  we don't accidentally breach copyright, 
                                        confidentiality, contracts, licence agreements, 
                                        etc.
                          
                                     -  we don't accidentally give away our IP (or 
                                        otherwise jeopardise its future use), e.g., by
                                        using something in a project when the project's
                                        contract says all IP used will belong to the
                                        customer, or similar.
                          
                                     -  we meet contractual requirements arising both 
                                        from the original source of the re-use item
                                        and from its re-use in the new situation. 
                          
                              2.Build up a chain of information / history as an item of
                                IP evolves (possibly spanning several
                                entries in the repository).
