Hey guys - let's figure out what we want to do about CC liscensing soon - Lessig has offered his staff to help us work through the issues.
I think the latest agreement i heard was an "opt out" forced CC liscence in the user preferences? What are everyones latest thoughts? -Zack ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Fri, 01 Aug 2003 08:03:38 -0700 From: Lawrence Lessig <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: [EMAIL PROTECTED], Matthew Haughey <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, Mike Linksvayer <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, Glenn <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, Laura Lynch <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, Neeru Paharia <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Subject: Re: Dean, Democracy, and more If Bush vetoes, it would be wonderful.
