Subject CC-BY in context

Hi Dennis,


The secret issue that Luis Villa and I are discussing that led to his blog post is the CC-BY
license, which has been recommended by some W3C members for use with the new W3C HTML 6 Recommendation.
We’re discussing that issue within W3C, but it certainly isn’t appropriate for me to bring
that discussion here. 


However -- To the extent that Apache or anyone else implements such W3C Recommendations, we
may be depending upon rights granted under CC-BY. 


Is the CC-BY license Category A or not?  If not, why not?

That’s interesting although I think this one may be more relevant to some things that go
on around here:

And thanks for the link to Luis.  If my blog reader ever works again, I’m subscribed [;<).

I promised to send this link to the list: 



I don’t necessarily agree with all of this, but everything Luis writes is worth thinking
seriously about. :-)
