Argh. Gluck seems to be back in business, but there's a copy here, too:
Probably worth pointing out that 8 April is tomorrow. We should be
getting a response from Creative Commons then, and I'd like to get the
rest of the machinery in motion afterwards.
I think the two big sticking points right now are:
* _Trademark_. I think we all consider it worth correcting, but
there are some folks who think that the problems aren't sufficient
to consider the CC licenses non-free. I'd appreciate if we can
come to some kind of compromise text. Maybe something along the
lines of, "We realize that this is not part of the license, but we
are concerned whether any of this language is binding on the
licensee or licensor. If so, we can't consider the license +
license use restrictions free."
* _Recommendation for new anti-DRM section_. I've put in a
suggestion for having an anti-DRM clause that meets our
requirements (free to choose who receives, free to use whatever
format as long as parallel format available), but I'm not sure it
meets everyone's approval. It would be good to close this off.
Otherwise, I think we're doing well. Thanks to everyone who's commented.
