Your last email was really hard to follow. Reading all this I think we
should officialy ask for advice to the EFF.

Do you think this is a good idea? Most of them are lawyers.

Plus, also consider copyright laws are made not only within countries
but with international trade agreements and it is also regulated by the
WTO. Any specific country can't just create new laws ignoring the
agreements they have signed, is it better to "expand" the existing
legislation, just like licenses do.

This also brings back the issue of an institution for the commons, as
obligatory licenses/revenues right now can and probably will go to the
State being the official representative of what's supposed to be.
