Concerning my motivation: it is not marketing. I care about Free Software. I
think this service is simply another peace we need to solve the big Free-
Software-Puzzle. It does happen to legally belong to a company and it might
make money (tm) but most importantly it follows and serves Free-Software
Making money is always a laudable goal for a business. ;)
What exactly is meant by "unless I stated something different before"? Does
that mean I can put proprietary data on UserWeave as long as I've released
it elsewhere under a proprietary license before I joined UserWeave?
(I'm sure it doesn't, but given that this is a legally-binding agreement,
this phrase should be worded differently or taken out altogether.)
There is a potential long term business model (tm). The idea: people that want
to use the service can pay for not having their data released and published.
This money shall be used to to finace the development and hosting of the
software under the best of Free Softwares principles. But it will always be
free of charge for projects working in the open. So this "state"ment is meant
to refer to this potential business model. I will have to think about
rephrasing it. I have been talking to some open knowledge foundation guys
before, perhaps they can help.
Please do think about rephrasing it. For instance, if we upload (other
people's) icons there, this will create a huge licensing issue for us.
It can be hard to track down everyone who's worked on an icon and it
will be even harder to convince them to relicense their icons "just" for
Maybe you could ask for people to use an "OSI-approved open source
license"/"GNU-approved free license" instead and just default to CC-by?
