Count me in! We exchanged a few ideas on github, did you see them? Hi all, I would like to start a collaborative document to address the legal aspects of Open HW / Open Design, namely: Extent of protection: - what is protected (by default) under copyright law - what is protectable under design rights - what is protectable under patent law Licensing: - how can we make a design Open ? - do current licensing schemes (such as Creative Commons) apply to design rights ? - how can we protect the paternity for automatically-generated works ? (e.g. produced by software) and many other questions that will come to my mind later on :) If anyone has any other questions and/or is interested in joining this endeavor, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me !
