That sounds like "a machine-readable language describing open source
software licences" to me. But perhaps I misunderstood your question.
Are you looking to take each possible legal provision and encode it in
some machine-readable form?
BSD = ALL_RIGHTS_RESERVED + FREE + RETAIN_NOTICES_IN_SOURCE +
RETAIN_NOTICES_IN_DOCS + NO_ENDORSEMENT + NO_WARRANTY?
If so, I don't think you will succeed. If it were possible to make legal
documents that simple, they'd be that simple :-)
