Abstract

This paper reflects the results of a study conducted as a side work connected with the development of ALIS (Automated Legal Intelligent System), modeling a representation of legal knowledge in the area of intellectual property rights using the RuleBurst rule-based system technology. In this first stage, our work has been focused on Italian Copyright law, with the aim to develop a method that could be extended and applied, in a subsequent stage, to other IP legislations in Europe. The integration in the ALIS decision support system of the Ruleburst inferencing system with an advanced legal text retrieval engine and a game-theory strategy engine is facilitated by using a (quasi) natural language-knowledge representation, enhancing the benefits of isomorphism.
