Here is the abstract:

In this paper, we present an approach of publishing legislative content as Linked Open Data (LOD). LOD is a set of principles of publishing data on the Web in a machine-readable way so that links between different data sets, possibly published by different publishers, can be created. Therefore, LOD enable not only to publish data but also enrich with other existing data published according to the principles. We present what is the motivation for publishing legislation as LOD and what benefits can be gained. We then introduce a legislative ontology which builds on existing commonly used ontologies. We also show how we converted existing sources of legislation in Czech Republic to LOD.
