Subject: RE: Trading Partner or Party - What's in a name

I always thought of a party as a party to a contract and a partner as
someone doing business with someone else.  They are almost synonymous in
our context.

I might mention that a month or so ago, my IBM group hosted a visit from a
Yale professor and a Yale visitor who are members of legalXML.  They had
seen tpaML and were very interested in it as a way of incorporating
technical specifications into a contract formulated as an XML document.

I agree with putting them both in the glossary.

How, though, do we decide where they are most applicable?


Probably by eliminating when they are in-applicable!?

Now we have a lawyer on the team - we probably have to consult
council as well, and decide if the council is a party or a TP, or if
there is a conflict of interest and then we can't do either - but we
can decide its an object.

Only lawyers would sue an object; TRP just transports them, one time,
one way!
