-----------------------

Greetings, I'd like to announce the formation of a new discussion
group on 
Creative Commons.

The goal is to develop a new form of hybrid commercial / non-commercial 
license for various kinds of intellectual property with particular
emphasis 
on software.  We hope to combine the best of open source and
proprietary 
models.  In so doing, we'll explore questions like:

         Can we create the
greatest social welfare and the greatest 
innovation?
         Can we simultaneously
benefit businesses, developers, and end 
users over the long run?
         Can we build models of
the process of software growth and diffusion?

This group will represent a forum for lively discussion and will be
charged 
with creating such a license.  More than just a set of interesting
debates, 
we'll also try to build models of the processes of software growth and 
diffusion.  Thus the process of license design itself should become
a kind 
of recursive open science.

To get things started, we've placed a 1 page Overview of a proposal and a 
longer Précis or description of economic tradeoffs at < 
<

http://creativecommons.org/discuss#commonwealth
>

http://creativecommons.org/discuss#commonwealth  
 >. The new topic will be the "creative commonwealth"
to capture the idea 
that creative innovation, sharing, and property rights need not be
mutually 
exclusive.  It will be reachable at
cc-bizcom
at lists.ibiblio.org .   We look 
forward to hearing from you.
