淺談公眾出資研究與美國FIRST法案

Planet CC -

所謂的公眾出資成果(publicly-funded)指得是,政府運用人民納稅之金錢而進行的研究、分析等產出的成果,例如,給予大學教授研究經費,而教授們的學術研究成果即屬之。從邏輯上而言,公眾出資研究成果這類的資源應該要提供給大眾,然而,事實上這卻不是一般常見的狀況。實際上,在大眾被授權接近這些素材前通常他們需要支付多次費用。以學術期刊之發表為例,許多大學的學者接受政府的資助來開展他們的學術研究,而這些資助實則由納稅人買單,當學者完成研究並將他們發表在營利性期刊上,這些期刊雜誌業者便借由收取訂閱費用的方式回頭銷售使用接觸的管道給各大學。顯而易見的,大多人皆會認為這並非一種對大眾的投資最有效率的使用方式。這是因為這些業者希望他們的商業利益能夠永遠維持並保持其商業模式。然而,不論從邏輯上,甚至道德觀點而言,大眾都應該要有機會接近經由其納稅的錢所資助而得之研究成果。閱讀全文 2014-07-25T07:40:50Z sunlight

EU Kommissionen anbefaler Creative Commons licenser til offentlige data

CC Danmark -

I sidste uge udsendte EU Kommissionen en række guidelines for udgivelse og genanvendelse af offentlige data og information i Europa. Blandt disse anbefalinger opfordres der eksplicit til at medlemsstaterne bør anvende standardiserede åbne licenser såsom Creative Commons-værktøjerne. Således skriver de:

“Several licences that comply with the principles of ‘openness’ described by the Open Knowledge Foundation to promote unrestricted re-use of online content, are available on the web. They have been translated into many languages, centrally updated and already used extensively worldwide. Open standard licences, for example the most recent Creative Commons (CC) licences (version 4.0), could allow the re-use of PSI without the need to develop and update custom-made licences at national or sub-national level. Of these, the CC0 public domain dedication is of particular interest. As a legal tool that allows waiving copyright and database rights on PSI, it ensures full flexibility for re-users and reduces the complications associated with handling numerous licences, with possibly conflicting provisions.”

Macaulay on Copyright

Planet CC -

Macaulay’s 1841 speech to the House of Commons on copyright law is often cited and not much read.  In fact, the phrase “cite unseen” gains a new meaning.  That is a shame, because it is masterful.  (And funny.) One fascinating moment?  When Macaulay warns that copyright maximalism will lead to a future of rampant illegality, [...]

第一份CC0官方翻譯版本誕生於荷蘭!

Planet CC -

CC0 (公眾領域貢獻宣告)是Creative Commons於2009年時推出的一項工具,他的設計是使創作者得以貢獻他們的作品成為公眾領域的內容,所憑藉的方式即是由權利人(即宣告者)放棄所有的著作權、著作鄰接權及相關的權利,亦即最大範圍的放棄法律所給予的權利。至於若該拋棄因任何理由而無效,則CC0會成為宣告者(使用CC0此一工具者)所為之准許公眾無條件、不可撤回、非專屬以及為人何目的而無償使用的授權。閱讀全文 2014-07-19T01:11:56Z sunlight

Project 365 #303: 301009 Blink And You’ll Miss It! / Pete / CC BY

Another run of School of Open courses is starting up in August, September and October! The first course to kick things off is a second iteration of “Why Open?” “Why Open?” was collaboratively developed and facilitated one year ago in August 2013; now the facilitators are back to run it a second time from 10 August to 5 September 2014. What is “Why Open?” From its About page,

Why Open? What does open mean? Does it mean free? Does it mean without restriction? What is the role of the producer? What is the role of the consumer? Why is open important? How does open relate to you and your area of expertise?

In this course, we will discuss and answer these questions. With your help, we will explore the different meanings of open in various contexts as well as its benefits and issues. Participants will use open practices to complete a series of open activities that builds into a final project.

Facilitators include Christina Hendricks (Philosophy lecturer at the University of British Columbia), Simeon Oriko (School of Open Kenya Initiative), Jeanette Lee (English lit and writing teacher), and myself.

Read more about the course over at the School of Open blog.

Sign-up is open now through 10 August; to join, simply click the ‘Start Course’ button on the lower left of the course page.
