Disclaimer of warranties and related issues

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Cable Green writes, via email to a dozen or so mailing lists, "Creative Commons (CC) is in the final stages of preparing draft 3 of 4.0 for public comment.  I want to call your attention to an open proposal (not yet incorporated in the draft or in any way committed to by CC) that would benefit from your input at this time, as it would have the potential to impact the OER and OA communities if it advances. At issue is whether to require licensors to undertake an affirmative representation and warranty that they have secured all rights the work subject to the CC license." Personally, I'm opposed to the idea, because it just exposes people to the injustices of the legal system, while producing no particular benefit to creators or users.
