has to be built on open licensing :)  But, I think the audience will likely
be familiar with but not hugely knowledgeable about open licenses & issues,
so a survey or similar would probably be good. I know from the university
perspective lots of faculty (and librarians) have a lot of questions about
what open license mandates from the government or in university
repositories mean about the rights to their work, concerns about commercial
use, etc.
