This is a proposal to add a "sub-" attribute to the Publisher Relationship Type.

Ideally, this relationship would have a locale selection drop-down menu like Aliases have, since sub-publishers typically only have rights to entities in select countries or regions.

Description

This indicates the publisher of an entity. The publisher is the person or organization that manufactures (or contracts out manufacturing), distributes (or contracts out distribution), and promotes (or contracts out promotion).
