Propose expanding range and domain of sponsor property. #962
I'm proposing to expand the range and domain of sponsor, currently described as "Sponsor of the study." where 'study specifically refers to a MedicalStudy. In my proposal, the expanded comment defining the property is:
I've created some examples in Microdata, RDFa, and JSON-LD covering the following situations:
These examples are in the file "sdo-sponsor-examples.txt."
I can imagine there may be other uses for sponsor (CreativeWork instances -- such as an episode of a media program), but am putting this forth as a start.
While working on a "sponsor" property, I discovered the existing property, https://schema.org/sponsor. While it appears that it isn't often used, my hope is that my proposed expanded domain/range and definition will increase usage significantly without breaking existing usages.
