The FWK Licensing Model

David Wiley, iterating toward openness, Apr 30, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It was with a gasp of surprise that I read, "FWK textbooks will be licensed CC By-NC-SA Plus." Because, yes, I've been reading David Wiley to be saying that people should not be using the Creative Commons NC clause. I thought that that was a fair reading - but if not then I will happily recant. Now next we'll look at 'the plus': "The Plus in our CC By-NC-SA Plus will indeed be More Permissions - it will grant blanket permissions for anyone and everyone to make Commercial Use of FWK-published textbook materials in the context of the FWK Marketplace." I hesitate to say anything about 'closed marketplaces'... (I'm also curious to know how FWK got mentioned in the New York Times...)
