Re: [jox] Licence for articles

I would make the argument for CC-BY-SA. A lot of Open Ed folks are
moving away from the "non-commercial" requirement because it can trip
up projects that are in some way touched by money. (E.g., you are
running a very inexpensive course, or selling T-shirts, or running
ads, or publishing an app--are you allowed to host the article?) If
the aim is the widest possible distribution, it seems like as open a
license as possible is a good idea.

The attribution requirement seems to be part of the culture of
academia, with some very good reasons, and I think it makes sense to
include it. The "share alike" is a more nuanced requirement, but
mitigates some of the issues commercialization might introduce...

The whole lot of the CC licenses are at the bottom:

I am not so worried that others will make a buck from our pieces, at
all, frankly :-) but you never know. There are some interesting choices
to be made about derivatives and such. In this case I am a fan of the
least restrictive ones.

All best,

Hi everyone

I am finalising the layout of the pdf versions of the articles and was wondering if there were any thoughts as to what the best [anti]copyright licence would be? Do we need one at all? I would say yes to stop anyone commercialising the papers (unlikely, but you never know). So what is the most useful - CC? I don't know much about this so any advice most welcome.
