The Victorian Parliament has recently announced it is conducting an inquiry into Improving Access to Victorian Public Sector Information in which they specifically want to cover creative commons and open source licences. They have produced a 75 page discussion paper.
It is important for the open source industry to be heard on this issue (and to create collateral for submission to other, similar inquiries), but without funding someone to draft a submission it is difficult to see how an adequate submission could be put together. Specific vendors might be able to put in partisan submissions I guess. How will the industry address this?
Submissions are due by 22 August.
