I think the title of this article "How RDF Can Use MARC in the Semantic Web World" is completely misleading. The (not very well written) article consists of two, non-related sections. The first part is a very brief summary of the semantic web and RDF, then there is an unfounded comparison of RDF/SemWeb with MARC, which is the subject of the second part. What is said about MARC is basically not true, or at best food for discussion. MARC is absolutely not an example for RDF, because the two things are of a completely different nature. On the contrary, RDF, or better the Semantic Web Linked Data concept, can be used to create a better bibliographic format or data model than MARC is.

Thanks for this comment, Lukas. I'm not really sure this RDF/MARC analogy makes sense. Still thinking about it.
