Too narrow article[edit]

"Chain of custody" is now used analogously in connection with certification within the timber supply chain. See for example:-

In due course, we should make provision for this within Wikipedia.

This expression is also used similarly in other fields, as implied by the introduction to the article that specifies that it deals with the expression as used in law. This article is too narrow and should be expanded to include other uses of the term. Sverrebm (talk) 07:58, 1 September 2014 (UTC)


The reference to "chain of custody" (n) may be incorrect. Is the correct term "chain-of-custody" (n)? (Consider brother-in-law, sister-in-law, mothers-in-law, etc.) Example: The computer program creates chains-of-custody. "Chains of custody" implies custody possesses chains, whereas "chains-of-custody" clearly refers to multiple administrative processes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:05, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Is this a joke?[edit]
