This forum will focus on 'open content', that is works such as books, music, and films which are provided under terms that allow for free access, redistribution and re-use. Questions to address include:

  • What exactly does 'open' mean? For example are Creative Commons non-commercial licenses open?
  • How should we promote the creation and distribution of open content?
  • Who will be producing open content and how will it be funded?
  • Will there be an 'open content' revolution (in analogy to the 'open source' revolution in software)?

  • Paula LeDieu, iCommons
  • Cory Doctorow, Writer and Campaigner
  • Tom Chance, RemixReading and Free Culture UK
  • Jennifer Rigby, BBC Creative Archive

There's an error in the text or metadata - one says "February 22, 2007", the other says "22nd February 2006". I guess 2006 is the right year?
