The main objective of this discussion is to understand how can we share legal knowledge with different communities and share elements about Open Source licenses. Feel free to add your ideas, opinions, experience, on elements added in this post my answering this topic.
Here are the first element mentioned during workshops :
- Designing a list of interpretations of each licences with legal & scientific ground,
- Legal repositories with (anonymous ?) legal content produced all around the world,
- Get the inspiration from other projects using wikipedia/Zenodo or similar project in order to share case law (and main legal scientific articles regarding these cases),
- Publish Open Source glossary,
- Share concrete uses cases of open source compliance approach by organisations and the problems they encountered.
- Create a collaborative FAQ on open source compliance issues and about main use cases (on a gitlab/github project),
- Collecting all use cases and different ways Open Source licences are interpreting all around the world,
- List all common / open and publicly available resources, suggesting their maintainers a way to work together,
- Creating a repository of all existing databases and articulate/converge as possible (link to the feed with all the example),
- Encouraging a participatory research-action approach in law to deal with the challenges of Open Source,
- Explaining why legal and compliance approaches are different and complimentary in Open Source Policies.
