   RE: [xml-dev] RDDL: Can we add a "copyright" version

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

What entity issues the license or asserts the copyright?  The W3C? 
If so, the copyright is likely better.  I don't think the W3C is 
in the business of licensing or collecting revenues for royalty-free 
specifications and standards.  I also think one would copyright 
the documents even if one issues a license for the IP claimed within.

Eric, what do you want to protect or manage with this IP claim?

Wouldn't "license" be a better name serving the same purpose? To me
"copyright" sounds more restrictive than "license" - and more
restrictive than necessary as well.

Besides that I'm in favour of the proposal.
