Possessor is not limited to cases of ownership, but also includes temporary forms of possession, such when something is on loan to or under the control of the possessor. The Possessor may be borrowing, renting, wearing, or holding the property:
There may be an implicit piece of property of which the stated item is a part:
A wearer of attire may be construed in multiple ways:
Pets, by default, are treated as property rather than family members (#003).
For Possessor/Possession to apply to an abstract piece of property, the property must be a commodity in the financial/commercial domain, or information stored externally to the Possessor in physical or electronic media.
This excludes other abstract notions that can be metaphorically possessed or transferred:
Originator should be preferred as the scene role wherever it is clear that the party in question created the item:
In cases of explicit transfer, the initial possessor of something is labeled Originator, and the final possessor of something transferred is the Recipient. However, when there is a possessed item whose transfer is merely assumed from context or world knowledge (and the party in question is not the creator), default to Possessor:
Possessed nouns like gift and contribution that refer to an entity but lexically imply a previous transfer event should be Possessor unless another argument of the noun disambiguates Originator vs. Recipient by process of elimination:
Animate party that has a piece of property (something potentially with monetary value: the Possession) on a permanent or temporary basis. The Possession must be alienable, i.e. not a part or attribute of the Possessor.
