Reading ~Roja and ~Everah's post, I think that I've been mistaken. I was thinking this was going to be a "Free as in Freedom" project.

Or am I wrong?

I was thinking it would be a 'Free Beer' and 'Free Speech' sort of thing.

If it's free as in freedom, commercial use (the essay deals with software, but it's also applicable to text). specifically concerns our dilemma.

None of the GNU licenses account for crediting the original producers of the metarial. The only real requirement in those licenses is that you have to include their license text. That seems kinda rank.

I think that in Chris' original post, he specifically mentioned that this would not be for profit or monetary gain (I forget the exact wording). Of course that doesn't mean that someone else can't totally bite our work, run it through a copier and sell the thing for goodness knows how much. I think the important thing that is coming up more and more in this thread is that folks want to make sure they get appropriate credit where credit is due. I personally would prefer to see this thing stay free for all. But if it comes down to seeing this book get sniped and sold or not produced at all, well then let them take it and sell it.

I do think, however, that there are other ways to keep most of this within the bounds of what the contributors want. We just need to explore those ways.

A and have been created for this endevour. Chris, d11wtq, is the owner of said usergroup. The board is, right now, only visible to that group and the moderators. If the group wishes to change this visibility or permissions layout, that is fine. This is just a starting point.
