- CC0 1.0 Universal
- WMF projects are now using CC-BY-SA and CC-BY (Wikinews)
- Libre Puro draft license will become an emblem like the Libre emblem ... or just launch the licence and start using it ??

As I remarked in my blog a while back, I don't see a reason to use "libre" when perfectly serviceable English words exist that make clear distinctions between the different meanings of "free".
Open vs Libre... still reading your essay but wanted to note that the intro is thought provoking. But, my initial reaction is to not agree that open dillutes the message of freedom. I agree that free does however - hense the need for the old beer qualifier or the use of the word libre.. but open (at least in knowledge and education) aligns with the traditon of open education, which for the most part is about access and equity. This is not to say that it includes the other aspects of freedom that we list as important, but I do think the open as in access and equity is closer than open as in open code.
But I'll read on hey Kim. This is just a note after reading your intro. :) Nice to have found your work. --Leighblackall 11:44, 15 October 2007 (CEST)
