Help for Submission! Does Copyright extremism affect open source development?


I am drafting a submission for OSIA to the DBCDE consultation paper on open access to public sector information (we got an extension). I’d be interested in any (first or second hand) experiences where copyright extremism has affected open source projects. For example, do you know of any occasions where someone has chosen not to implement useful, non-infringing functionality for fear of being sued?

Anecdotal evidence is fine, but any examples that I can quote publicly would be better. (Soon! Due tomorrow)

Thanks (IA)

Brendan
