  8. 8. Why the extra care about data[bases] now? ● explosion in data sharing; if permitted uses not clear, chaos rules ● in general increasing adoption of licensing solutions for data[bases] ○ CC licenses, CC0, PDDL, ODC-BY, ODbL ● primary threat = not sharing/proprietary data ● what should CCs role be? shift from tool supplier to commons steward ● if yes, put global scalability, interoperability, standards at front
  9. 9. Ongoing interoperability challenges ● incompatible open licenses (copyleft mostly) ● proliferation of semi-custom terms ● use of non-open public licenses (NC, ND) ● no licensing, ad hoc sharing, no sharing...and related ● CC licenses inadequately address sui generis database rights; thus entered ODC, OGL, etc. ● communications/perception problem that CC not appropriate for data ● many agree: publicly funded science should be PD
  10. 10. CC license version 4.0 ● process starting soon; need your help ● will address big and small; "future proof" the licenses ● top of interoperability "fix list" is sui generis db rights handling ● licensing db rights, like copyright, to extent applies-- this is one option, and needs extreme care ● many CC affiliate stakeholders ● Warsaw Sept 2011 = CC Global Summit
