Noncommercial Isn'T the Problem, ShareAlike Is

David Wiley, iterating toward openness, Jul 18, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

David Wiley takes another look at the whole issue of licensing and restrictions. He argues, "The biggest legal problem facing the open educational movement is license incompatibility... Why, when we are so worried about preserving freedoms, do we prohibit choice on the part of downstream users as to how they can license derivatives works they make?" My response is, "The fundamental dilemma, in my view, is that some uses of a work essentially destroy the openness of the work."
