CC 4.0 discussions: digital resources vs paper etc.

Jump to: navigation, search

Relevant points are surfacing at the CC 4.0 discussions (e.g. Dec 2011).

  • drew Roberts Sun Dec 11 09:56:55 EST 2011 pointed out that:
    • the current wording excludes printed copies.
      • Suggested wording (later): "For digital redistributions under this license must be in a free file format..."
        • How about: "Redistributions of digital representations under this license must be in a free file format ..." - (I am regarding this fix as straightforward enough to make it immediately). Thanks to drew Roberts :-) Kim Tucker 23:55, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Luis Villa ([Luis Villa Sun Dec 11 16:20:30 EST 2011) indicated that free file formats and being able to access and modify a resource with libre software is not sufficient to ensure the resource is libre.
    • Consider adding a clause on Protection of freedoms. - Kim Tucker 23:55, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
      Added a fix for the technical measures issue: digital representations under this license must be in a free file format with no technical measures which restrict the essential freedoms, and be fully editable and deployable with libre software.. By including "deployable" we cover web services which would need to be free in the GNU Affero sense. Comments? - Kim Tucker 23:08, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
