Brute force attack updates from tvol & punkish 21 February 2014

● CC license version 4.0 ● Text and data mining in relation to licensing ● Open license marking best practices ● CC Science updates ○ Science Affiliates Network ○ Science and policy salons ● CC Policy updates ○ Open Policy Network ○ Institute for Open Leadership ● Q&A


Sui Generis Database Rights ○ now licensed alongside copyright; doesn’t apply where they don’t exist Common-sense attribution ○ URI shortcut possible 30-day window to correct license violations ○ rights reinstated if fixed within 30 days of discovery More global/better readability ○ end porting now! Operation of Share-Alike ○ downstream adaptations can come under later version of SA license Clarity about ND ○ extract and reuse under ND licenses, but no sharing


Carroll: “even content under a [BY-NC license] can be freely mined for commercial purposes because the license applies only to uses covered by copyright, and copyright does not regulate text mining— at least in the United States.”

Keep copyright out of TDM ... wishful thinking?


Where does this leave us WRT open licensing?

Copyright mostly harmonized globally

...but not everything

Pragmatic approach

What does 4.0 say?


Is permission necessary to undertake the particular mining activity? A licensor grants the public permission to exercise rights under copyright, neighboring rights, and similar rights closely related to copyright, including sui generis database rights. The license only applies when at least one of these rights held by the licensor applies to the use made by the licensee.

NO: CC license is irrelevant to the TDM activity and the analysis is complete. YES: then...

More Questions

Is the TDM activity being undertaken primarily for commercial purposes? NO: you can mine under any of the six CC licenses. YES: you may not mine material licensed under NC.

More Questions

Are the data or other outputs from your mining activity an adaptation of the underlying material you mined? NO: you can share all outputs from mining any of the six CC licenses so long as you provide proper attribution. YES: you can only share your adaptation if the CC license on the underlying material from which the adaptation is derived permits it (BY, BY-SA, BY-NC-SA, BY-NC).

Special considerations for BY-ND and BY-NC-ND “...grants You the right to extract, reuse, reproduce, and Share all or a substantial portion of the contents of the database, provided You do not Share Adapted Material”

But don’t forget

Science + ND =




Institute for Open Leadership



Current system = broken

Optimized system = possible!

OPEN POLICY: Publicly funded resources are openly licensed resources


IDEA ● Warsaw CC Summit 2011 ● OER on the radar of policymakers ● affiliates requested support ● current efforts decentralized and uncoordinated ● need a network to share and discuss ● need best data, toolkits, arguments ● let’s not miss opportunities that arise!

MISSION ● Foster the creation, adoption, and implementation of open policies that advance the public good. ● Do this by supporting advocates, organizations, policymakers, and connecting policy opportunities with those who can provide assistance.

PRINCIPLES ● ‘Open Policy’: publicly funded resources are openly licensed resources ● Default aim for policy licensing: Open Definition (with preference for CC BY and CC0). ● Do not recreate the wheel; leverage expertise ● Work from existing policy recommendations: Paris OER, BOAI, Panton Principles, Communia, etc. ● Free for anyone to join. Contribute and abide by mission and guiding principles.

WORK PLAN ● Link to, catalog, and curate existing policy resources. ● Build new resources and/or services only where capacity or expertise does not currently exist. ● Connect policy makers to experts. ● Provide baseline level of assistance for all opportunities. ● Share information with openly with members and the public, using open licenses (of course), multiple languages, transparent fashion.


Institute for Open Leadership



Institute for Open Leadership ● weeklong intensive in-person training program on ‘open’ ● train new leaders in the values and implementation of open licensing, policies, and practices ● connect emerging open leaders with one another ● provide access to experts in variety of open fields ● 20 participants each year; 2 years ● instructors from various open areas: education, science, open access, PSI, data, software, culture, etc.


Institute for Open Leadership ● need for sustainable open movement and new generation of open leadership ● expand reach of open ideas and practice into new institutions and areas ● leaders can set positive example and give advice to others ● in person is valuable mode for training and networking

● Focus on capstone projects participants will propose an open project, work on at institute week, complete at their institutions within a year ● transform the concepts learned at the institute into practical, actionable, and sustainable initiative within his/her institution ● SUCCESS = ○ Increase the amount of openly licensed materials in the commons; ○ Increase awareness among colleagues and related stakeholders about the benefits of openness; ○ Successful implementation of policy; ○ Demonstrate measurable results.


Librarian at a university able to foster an open access policy at their institution; university faculty agree to contribute publicly funded research into the university repository under open licenses.

Logistics ● who: emerging leaders and mid-level managers not already involved in the open community but showing interest and potential, high impact ● process: ○ application & selection period ○ primed for institute by completing open courses from School of Open ○ intensive in-person event ○ completion of open policy capstone projects ● timeline: ○ March 2014 application period; July 2014 institute 1 ○ November 2014 application period; March 2015 institute 2 ● travel/hotels/meals paid for through grants from Hewlett and OSF
