  • 19. Jacobsen v. Katzer
  • 20. "... Open source licensing has become a widely used method of creative collaboration that serves to advance the arts and sciences in a manner and at a pace that few could have imagined just a few decades ago. For example, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology uses a Creative Commons public license for an OpenCourseWare project that licenses all 1800 MIT courses. ... There are substantial benefits, including economic benefits, to the creation and distribution of copyrighted works under public licenses that range far beyond traditional license royalties.” Jacobsen v. Katzer, US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit – August 18th, 2008, Case no. 2008-1001
