Hi all,

Richard Worth quite rightly brought up the issue of licensing of the content on IRC.

I have spoken to the Opera lawyers and worked out that it is all ok and legal for us to move the Opera web standards curriculum material over to the W3C and chance the license from by-sa-nc to remove the nc part - we don't want it to be non-commercial because there are lot of potential really good valid commercial uses of our content that we don't want to preclude it from.

The question I would like ask to ask you for feedback on is this:

shall we go with by-sa. or just by? I think by-sa is best, as I worry what would happen to our material if we didn't include SA. We want the material and any evolution of it to be open, surely?

Any arguments for and against the two options, here?

BTW, I have updated the copyrights page:
