This is not legal advice. Leave audio feedback at (512) 686-6329. This show was recorded and edited using GNU/Linux.

Expected Audience: Those interested in CC 4.0.

I apologize for the echo on my audio. It didn't happen at the beginning of the recording, so I thought maybe it would stop, but it never did once it started. If you watch the video, you'll notice that Jessica isn't wearing headphones, so let that be a lesson to all you would-be podcasters...always wear headphones while producing a show!

On the other hand, at least this time Google didn't decide to cut out Doug's audio while he was typing...because Doug didn't type. That means the show notes aren't that great. If you'd like better show notes in the future, please make sure you donate. Donations are sure to get my attention. Also, I'm always interested in getting additional volunteers to help out with writing, editing and promoting the Lawcast, so just let me know if you'd be willing to put in the time to make great show notes.

Alright, onward...

Here's the show Tom and I did with Jessica back in December. Before that, and actually, before Music Manumit existed, CC came out with the 3.0 license in 2007.

Big things:
  • They've made the language more "plain English"
  • No more porting (well, there will be some)

There are still some countries that have not signed Berne (though TRIPS incorporates "almost all" of Berne): Afghanistan, Angola, Burundi, Cambodia, East Timor, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq, Kiribati, Kuwait, Maldives, Marshall Islands, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, San Marino, São Tomé and Príncipe, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Taiwan, Turkmenistan, Tuvalu and Uganda.

If you want to get involved int he 4.0 process, the best way to do so at this point is to check out the wiki and get involved in translation.
