  • News - Help Support the Open Har… | about 10 months ago

    It’s really timely that you’re discussing this, for the next iteration of the Open Source Science Tricorder project I’ve actually drafted a CC-BY-SA derived license that’s been modified both with much of the same IP language found in TAPR/CERN, and with the requirement that for for-profit use, 10% of the profits must be donated to a basic literacy or science education charity (though I think in the final version this will also allow a split between science/literacy charities and the EFF and/or OSHWA). Since a lot of folks are already using CC-BY-SA for open hardware, my hope is that this could be a drop-in replacement. I sent the draft to Alicia earlier this week to get OSHWA’s comments – I can send a copy your way if you’d like? I’m particularly interested in the charitable contribution percentage (10% net), and whether that’s a realistic number given typical margins. In the end the benefit in the form of charitable contributions are only as useful as the adoption rate of the license.

No public wish lists :(
