Abstract: The copyright issue is very important in education industry all along. Especially while coming into contact with global sharing of educational resources, mutual well-understood of the copyright laws is worthy of attention. However, there is a lack of systemic knowledge management methodology for the issue; closely connected to this problem is that most of intelligent laws systems are undesirable and ineffective for international semantic mapping of laws knowledge. Hence, this research aims to design a conceptualization supporting system with the capability of “Intention” and ontology for searching and mapping laws from different nations based on senamtic component of law. We focus on the intention behind the different copyright laws because the semantic similarity among the laws can be well recognized based on the intention, and we propose a “Intention Oriented ” Model (“IOM”). The value of “intention-oriented” prespective is obviously not noly in formulating intention behind the law, but also in providing a uniform criterion for integrating laws component from different national laws. The capability of IOM makes this system to take on verifiable reasoning. Meanwhile, we adopt ontological engineering approach for appropriately representing among different national laws and international treaties. Ontology clarifies systematic semantics of the vocabulary with which queries and assertions are exchanged among agents. The capability of ontology is provide “subclass-link” to identify concept subsumption relationship, which facilitates this system flexible matching. Moreover, in this research the copyright law ontology provides well-organized concept to clarify the commonality and the difference among different national laws and internatioanal treaties.
