It's great to read through the process of your policy unfolding -- all very relevant points in the discussion. I think the most important point is how to encourage ppl to expand your content, rather than merely cutting and pasting. It looks like you've done a good job of covering that. I think another way to do it is to always include questions in your work, questions that people can't help but try to answer...

Bravo Beth. I understand the need to protect our ability to have a sustainable living (yep we need to get paid for something) but so much prefer to hear the call for open sharing. Sounds like this approach offers the best of both.

I agree with Zoe in that we need to "...make it easy as possible for build to build and extend the ideas". As a sample-based electronic musician, I also riff a bit off of Steven Downes sentiment too - 'locking' down stuff - particularly digital/remixable cultural artifacts (like books, games, music, ideas) is a bit like trying to stop a tidal wave with a spoon.

Our reserves (cultural, political, natural) have been depleted, but more great people will becoming after us - I think we really need to pay it forward.

Are we leaving remixable breadcrumbs?
