*This doesn't apply to work by individuals themselves.*

I am listing the license and thought process behind them. Please do comment.

*For artifacts: **CC BY-SA 2.0*
*Idea:* Allow everyone to use it, in any way they want, as long as they
attribute and share in similar way

Share — copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format
Adapt — remix, transform, and build upon the material for any purpose, even

Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the
license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable
manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your
ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must
distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.

*For code: GNU/GPL*
Allows commercial use and make them share alike just like (but not same)
the  CC BY-SA 2.0

- Allows remix, share, distribute (all 5 freedoms)
- Allows commercial usage
- Makes attribution and share - compulsory


*For Data : Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL)*

If we want to use specific license for data then we can use this. This is
similar to CC BY SA 2.0

You are free:
To Share: To copy, distribute and use the database.
To Create: To produce works from the database.
To Adapt: To modify, transform and build upon the database.
As long as you:
Attribute: You must attribute any public use of the database, or works
produced from the database, in the manner specified in the ODbL. For any
use or redistribution of the database, or works produced from it, you must
make clear to others the license of the database and keep intact any
notices on the original database.
Share-Alike: If you publicly use any adapted version of this database, or
works produced from an adapted database, you must also offer that adapted
database under the ODbL.
Keep open: If you redistribute the database, or an adapted version of it,
then you may use technological measures that restrict the work (such as
DRM) as long as you also redistribute a version without such measures.

Note: If we are extending some ones code/data/artifact, we can continue to
use the license which the original author has used it. Its easy that way.
If we start one fresh we can use one of ours.

Lets discuss this on the list. I will blog the conclusions/results on next wednesday for future reference.

Thanks a lot for your time.
