[Lifehack] Creative Common for scientists!
(via la feuille), there is now a "creative common" project for scientists and academics. It's funny to get this just two weeks after google scholar. Hum I'm doing apophenia here :) Is too much patterning bad for health?!
Any way, the use of creative common licenses for academic production raises interesting issues that should be tackled. Judging from the website, it is a bit too much US-oriented but it's a good starting point.
The mission of Science Commons is to encourage scientific innovation by making it easier for scientists, universities, and industries to use literature, data, and other scientific intellectual property and to share their knowledge with others. Science Commons works within current copyright and patent law to promote legal and technical mechanisms that remove barriers to sharing.
