Hi all,

This is a "for information" post, which is connected with OSHWA purpose.

§-- If you have only a flash moment for reading this post:
this is a suggest to have a look to TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE LICENCE at

§-- If you have more time to read:
As you may know, I'm part of those, on this OSHWA Discuss List, who are
particularly sensitive with the effect that the concept of copyright could
have on local culture where this copyright concept is not aligned with
ancestral usages (often, this takes place where oral culture is proeminent).

And I've been informed that a project is currently trying to solve this
kind of problem, proposing adapted licences called:
* http://www.localcontexts.org/#licenses

>From my humble point of view this initiative will certainty touch, one day,
some Free Libre OpenSource Tangible works, and other licences works.

The entrance of ancestral or cultural non-copyrightable works (because of
lack of such law in the places where they are taking place), into the danse
of Global Open Knowledge (and Global Open Tangible works), is maybe a
important event.

Oder ? No ?
