Alternatively, does anyone want to push on Congress to do something about copyright law so that the US Government can use the standard, already approved licenses?
> Are you sure about that? I've scanned the archives and don't see anything about a NOSA 3.0. Just about 2.0. And 2.0 was never approved; the only approved version is 1.3. The last discussion on NOSA 2.0 was around June of 2018.
My recollection is that the NASA lawyer mentioned working on a NOSA
3.0 but this version was never submitted for OSI approval and I'm not
aware of it being used publicly. I think the various version numbers
of NOSA are getting confused in this and other recent threads.
