[ please discuss this license. -russ ]
My name is Chris Knight, and I'm working with Beatnik towards the
release of their browser plugin as an open source project.
I have completed step 1, attaching the current proposed license in HTML
format as an attachment and making it available on-line for review:
As for step 2... Standard IANAL disclaimer. :) My original goal had been
to release the Beatnik Player under the BSD license, but pre-existing
license restraints and a lawyer still on the payroll at Beatnik blocked
that path entirely. A review of the license by Richard Geiger at Perforce
estimated our license to be closest to the IBM license. I am not able to
judge evaluations of precedence or incompatibility. I believe the license
is close to being usable, but I'm very much open to suggestion in almost
any area you feel it needs work.
I have subscribed to the list, and away any feedback you may be able to offer.
As per #4, I would prefer that my identity be attached to this license and
discussion. I have no reason to remain anonymous during the process.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
