I've tweeted this out a few times now, but I thought I'd also share this
with the mailing list.

Thanks to this blog from the OA team at Oxford Uni:

I've become aware of another published article explaining the history and
practicalities of creative commons licences published in a recent (2013)
book called: Perspectives on Open and Distance Learning: Open Educational
Resources: Innovation, Research and Practice
openly available from here:

I've cut the open book PDF down to just Norm Friesen's chapter 6 'Realising
the Open in Open Educational Resources: Practical Concerns and Solutions'
here if you want to read it right away...

(all perfectly legal thanks to the CC BY-SA licence the book is published

It's great to have more third-party reviewed evidence in support of the use
of CC BY for published academic materials whether OER or publications.
