Dear All,

I've started a question on Quora to discuss the topic of whether scientific
texts (rather than data) should be put into the public domain rather than
licensed under CC-BY, as it seems an important issue which hasn't been
extensively discussed. The discussion is at
http://www.quora.com/Should-scientific-writing-be-put-into-the-public-domain -
I'd be grateful for any thoughts, particularly from people with legal

Best wishes,
