CC 3.0 Public Discussion

The public discussion is an open forum where everyone – from lawyers to active license users, from linguists to translators — is invited to contribute.

The BY-NC-SA 3.0 license draft adapted to Irish law is ready for public discussion. The English version of the BY-NC-SA license is available, as is a summary of the substantial changes proposed by the legal team to port the licenses to Irish copyright law.

If you have comments about the license draft, whether in regards to legal, linguistic or usability issues, please feel welcome to use the wiki's discussion page or the CC Ireland mailing list to share your thoughts.

Comments should be submitted as soon as possible to allow enough time for review, so we encourage you to post to the list before the end of March 2011, when the discussion is scheduled to close.

Thanks to the ongoing efforts of Project Leads Dr. Darius Whelan and Louise Crowley with the support of University College Cork.
