I have made the Open Source Content License and am submitting it for review
in hopes that it will become OSI approved.  The OSCL can be found at it would best fit in the category of
Other/Miscellaneous licenses.  It was written especially to meet the needs
of a project RCB I.T. Solutions has to promote open source software.  It is
a collaborative development environment and we were unable to find a good
open source license that meets our needs exactly so we wrote this.  We hope
that it can be OSI approved and used elsewhere and not just on our site.  If
anyone here has any legal background and would give a free assessment of the
license that would be awesome because do the issue of hiring an attorney to
look at it is too expensive for my small company.  Any other input is much
appreciated, thanks for your time.
