Open Source Copyright.
As a follow-up to this thread
, Creative Commons has now officially launched
. I'm quite interested to see the various content creators who take these licenses and run with them - amateur filmmakers, independent musicians, authors, writers, and technologists .....should have groups like the MPAA and RIAA quaking in their boots.

The W3C's RAND Patent Policy
commenting deadline has been extended. At first glance, the new policies seem to encourage software patents, but after reading the whole thing and the W3C's response to current comments, it looks, to my admittedly naive eyes, as though the W3C is trying to make it so that companies using proprietary software are going to have
to make it available to other people for licensing. Why is this new structure potentially a bad thing?
