> Oggetto: [okfn-discuss] Law and the GeoWeb
> Data: Fri, 19 Nov 2010 13:28:11 -0600
> Law and the GeoWeb
> ==================
> A workshop on "Intellectual Property and Geographic Data in the
> Internet Era" sponsored by Creative Commons and the United States
> Geological Survey (USGS) in conjunction with the annual meeting of
> AAG, April 11, 2011, Seattle, Washington. The workshop will be held at
> the campus of Microsoft Research, and will be streamed live on the
> Internet.
> This workshop will focus on intellectual property issues with
> geographic data, exploring situations when users and creators ranging
> from individuals to local, state and federal agencies as well as
> private companies and non-profits create, share and reuse geographic
> information from different sources over the Internet in their
> projects.

> Rationale
> =========
> U.S Copyright Law protects tangible original works with creative
> content but the law also ensures that facts, that is, data that are
> discovered rather than invented, remain free for everyone's benefit.
> This ideas/expression dichotomy creates a lot of issues in the
> Internet age when information is very easily created, shared, used and
> reused.
> With inexpensive computing and networking power available to everyone,
> geographic datasets are increasingly being created, shared and used by
> individuals, grassroots organizations, and private corporations. These
> data come with different expectations with regards to how they may be
> used resulting in a hodgepodge of licensing and contractual
> obligations that hinders data interoperability. Mixing data of
> different provenance creates new data with typically more restrictive
> licensing conditions. Public agencies may be unable to mix licensed
> data with government data due to restrictive licensing terms of the
> resultant dataset, and thus, may be unable to capitalize on and
> benefit from user-generated content.
> Workshop Structure
