This paper discusses some issues related to the use of rules for the Semantic Web. We argue that rule formalisms and rule-based technologies have to offer a lot for the Semantic Web. In particular, they allow a simple treatment of defeasible reasoning, which is essential for being able to capture many forms of commonsense policies and specifications.
