@sozialwelten Interesting. Hope it will work.

Once there is a user base, I can imagine that companies would be willing to participate. If they are convinced their products are better and want to signal that confidence smaller companies may adopt it. Maybe not relevant for books, but the costumer feedback is also valuable.

Another question is whether you would like companies to be able to control the created of new persistent product IDs.

@VictorVenema @sozialwelten companies could give raw open data, but the persisted ids and data would be under control of the community, possibly referencing other authorities ids à la . But, from the experience of we know that big companies don't like to play the open data game

@VictorVenema @sozialwelten cf how French food companies try to rebuild there own proprietary database to compete with savoirscom1.info/2019/01/large (couldn't find an article on the matter in English, sorry)

@VictorVenema @sozialwelten the case of books was and is a good starting point for exploring as there are way more book professionals interested in sharing data, cf and how libraries could contribute to
