Full Title or Meme

A [[Legal Person] is a real-world entity that has legal standing in a jurisdiction.

Context

Problems

  • Legal names can be changed by the bearer or guardian and so cannot be relied upon to stay constant over time.
  • Legal names are only valid in a legal jurisdiction, typically a sovereign state.
  • Moving the bearer of the name to a region with a different alphabet will require some sort of transliteration of the name at a minimum.
  • So the legal name could be different in different jurisdictions.

Solutions

  • User Objects should have a name (key) that is assigned when the object is created, and that should never be changed unless some error has occurred.
  • Any other Identifier in the User Object should be changable under the right conditions.
  • Each data control can decide for themselves whether they wish to track the legal status of the Subject of the database object that they track.
