VS: Antwort: [openchain] Open Source Law Book

Martin von Willebrand

Re Finland, all these licenses are ok for me.


On top of the structure we derived from Ywein et al, if any, I believe we need to check what rights we gave to the publisher. In a pre-print copy of the work I have, the copyright is mentioned to belong to “Open Source Press”. Working from the distance, I don’t have access to my archives currently. Digging mails from 2010/2011 is of course an option too.


Best, Martin

England and Wales: I’m a bit reluctant to use BY-SA as it does make it more difficult to quote parts of the book in other works. I’d be happy with CC-BY (but if the consensus is CC-BY-SA, then fine. Ultimately, since I think the Ur-chapter which we all based ours on was written by Ywein (correct me if I’m wrong), all chapters will ultimately be driven by his decision anyway)).

I don't recall if we, as authors of individual chapters (need some updates), assigned our copyright to the publisher or else.


Personally I an Simone would be content with a cc-by of sort. I would be surprised if we stipulated anything more restrictive than by-sa.

Oh! Interesting. Oversight. I’ll check with the other editors.


Hey Till, Ywein, which license should the book be under?

Hi Shane,

great stuff - thanks for sharing.

Under which license can we use this material?
(Sorry to ask, but it seems as there's no statement on that on the repo...)

Greetings all

Some years ago I was one of the editors of a law book covering open source country by country:

The book is now out of print but text files and all the other source material is right here:

I thought this might be useful. I just had a call today where I was asked about exactly this type of analysis.
