my name is Lars Zimmermann, i am active in the field of open source hardware
for various reasons. Because i always get the question of licensing i wrote
something towards an Open Source Hardware License Guide. (Link:
http://owiowi.net/liscense-guide-en/ ). Leopold Zyka who is going to found
the Open Farm Lab Austria read it and wrote me an email with an idea i think
is great and probably interessting.

Leo asked for an „Open Source Legal Advice Plattform or Forum“. Reading the
license guide he had a lot more questions and wished there would be some
kind of plattform, where he could find better answers – a plattform with a
lot of example-cases / case-study. With answers written by lawyers.

I remember that i saw once a forum in the internet where actual lawyers
answered legal questions for money. Someone posted a question, then
different lawyers called a price and the lawyer with the lowest bid got to
answer the question and afterwards the answer was public available for all
to study. A true open source way!

So i think this is defenitely an interessting idea. Maybe if the right eyes
read it they get inspired and put something into action.
