Premium Free Range OER

Geoff Cain, Brainstorm in Progress, Nov 06, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

As mentioned yesterday, Flat World Publishing is the most recent company to disappoint its community as the former publisher of free and open texts has decided that 'free and open' means charging money for them. Geoff Cain responds, "I am announcing here that CainCo EduProducts will also be offering premium free textbooks at a relatively fair and competitive cost." How can this be? His book, he says, will be "free range books", much like the chickens picture. Parody, of course. Because there are laws about labling foods, aren't there? (Image from Wikimedia)
