  • 1. sharing scientific data: legal, normative, and social issues kaitlin thaney program manager, science commons beijing, china - 25 march 2009 This presentation is licensed under the CreativeCommons-Attribution-3.0 license.
  • 2. legal issues: “it’s complicated”
  • 3. copyright and databases what’s protected? is it legal? facts are free to what extent is there creative expression?
  • 4. database protections based on jurisdiction sui generis, “sweat of the brow” Crown copyright the list goes on ....
  • 5. still murky ... what is / is not protected? what rights does the user have?
  • 6. social issues: protection instinct / culture of control PD relinquishes much of this control, even control in the service of freedom “my data”, interpretation issues fear, uncertainty, doubt (FUD)
  • 7. issue of license propagation whatever you do to the least of the databases, you do to the integrated system (the most restrictive wins)
  • 8. need for a legally accurate and simple solution reducing or eliminating the need to make the distinction of what’s protected requires modular, standards based approach to licensing
  • 9. our solution - reconstruction of the public domain create legal zones of certainty for data attribution through accompanying norms
  • 10. 3.1 The protocol must promote legal predictability and certainty. 3.2 The protocol must be easy to use and understand. 3.3 The protocol must impose the lowest possible transaction costs on users. For the full text: http://sciencecommons.org/projects/publishing/open-access-data-protocol/
  • 11. CC Zero waiver + SC norms waive rights public domain attribution / citation through community norms, not a contract
  • 12. a protocol, not a license
  • 13. calls for data providers to waive all rights necessary for data extraction and re-use requires provider place no additional obligations (like share-alike) to limit downstream use request behavior (like attribution) through norms and terms of use
  • 14. public domain is the natural state of data examples: human genome, geographic data, NASA photographs
  • 15. public domain = license, cannot be made “more free” - only less free PD = the original commons at least make metadata open, if can’t make data itself open
  • 16. ensure freedom to integrate kaitlin@creativecommons.org sciencecommons.org neurocommons.org
