    • Our core mission is to deliver spatial interface specifications that are openly available for global use.
      • http://www.opengis.org/about/?page=vision
  • 4. What does “Openly available for global use” mean?
    • Global
      • Different legal systems
      • English is not the predominant language
    • Openly available
      • Copyright should at a minimum allow downloading, printing, fair use.
  • 5. Other considerations
    • Copyright should be
      • Clear, easy to understand
      • Consistent across all documents
        • Learn the terms of one and you’re all set
    • Use of the document should be as unencumbered as possible
  • 6. Copyright Study
    • The next slides will show the 17 different copyright statements found in the 70 documents.
    • There are 3 “families” of copyright statements
      • OK to Copy - 3 variations
      • Don’t copy - 7 variations
      • Miscellaneous - 7 distinct versions
      • Conflicting Combinations - 3 combinations
        • OGC + POSC
        • OGC + ISO (2 variations)
