the last sentence made me think. Indeed! Todays political systems want to preserve the fragmented space, fragmented knowledge and also protect ownership of those fragments. This they do by signing bilateral treaties. Due to these unfortunate incompatibilities creative commons chapters in different countries have to write their own versions of CC licenses. As the creative commons movement grows big, we can nullify these treaties (such as TRIPS or ACTA) and achieve that sum of human knowledge in one place. -- GN _______________________________________________ Wikimediaindia-l mailing list Wikimediaindiafirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaindia-l
