Huw raised this earlier, a week or so ago. We need to discuss licensing.
Huw started a page on the wiki to 'discuss' it, but please use the mailing
The core issues:
-Do we need a license?
-If so, what license should we pick? What are available?
Another issue Huw raised, which I believe I can address:
"Is it ok to copy text from mailing list posts?"
A:Provided they posted text to the mailing list, the user knows their text
will be widely distributed and archived on the web. I don't see this as a
major issue. We can add text to various Audifans pages clarifying that
posts may be used for the knowledgebase, etc.
As for using copyrighted material on the web- the submission button has a
big block of bold text warning people about this. Not a whole lot we can
do except keep an eye out for it and/or respond when someone brings it to
Huw, anything else?
