New ways to share information

Check out this interview with John Wilbanks on the creation of the Science Commons.

"For example, is there a role for Science Commons to develop Open Source modular, voluntary mechanisms that allow institutions to make some of their licenses and patents available in such a way that the legal status does not hinder innovation?" asks Wilbanks. He hopes to bring together the various stakeholders, including the universities, the technology licensing managers, the consumers of technology licenses, lawyers and technologists, to try to see how Science Commons could create legal and technical 'products' for them to use. "The goal is to bring the community together to help charter some work in this area. We want it to be community-driven."

Good luck getting Yale involved.
