Dear colleagues, friends and OSHWA members,

as you may know the Free Knowledge Institute is part of the Digital DIY
research project. As part of our work we are studying the legal
challenges and how practitioners resolve them.

We have produced a draft report that we hope to be useful for the
various maker and related communities. We would be delighted to receive
your constructive feedback.

Many of those challenges are addressed every now and then on this
mailing list. Licensing is clearly one, in particular OSHW licenses.

Other challenges include liability, drone regulation, IoT, privacy and
anonymity, we touch blockchain and dangerous information.

Here's a brief blogpost on it, from which you can download the PDF or
add comments in a google docs version.

Any feedback will be welcome, through the channels mentioned in the blog
or by mail to me personally.

best regards,

Wouter Tebbens
