Suggestion tracking

Relative to draft language posted at

Section 4(f)


"and You Reproduce" should be "if You Reproduce"



For consistency "national law" should be "local law"

CC internal suggestion

otherwise permitted

By removing "or as may be otherwise permitted by applicable law" from the first sentence, the clause could be read to be purporting to remove any defences applicable to the infringement of the moral right of integrity (reasonableness).

Suggest adding the words "except as permissible under the local law." to the end of the first sentence.


Other sections

No suggestions yet. Proposed scope of change is only Section 4(f).


Concerns raised without any suggestion to address.

warranty of waiver

In countries where "any exercise of the right granted in Section 3(b) [...] could violate the moral right of integrity of the Original Author", if the Licensor is not the original author, the value of the licence is almost nil (only the reproduction right is effectively licensed). I would be concerned about (a) the lack of either a warranty that moral rights have been cleared or a notice that they haven't, and (b) the potential liability of the Licensor for misleading conduct.


what about sui generis rights?

Should 3.01 also address database rights which are addressed in relevant jurisdiction licenses?
