LAB 3 - Open Source and Creative World

Lab hosted by Leonardo Chiariglione, Digital Media Strategist

Open source has played a strong role in developing new ways to produce software, but the contents side has not changed, remaining within the 'copyright' boundary. Recently the Creative Commons movement begun proposing new licence types which are conceptually similar to the open source ones. The first results are already available.

Some questions that will be answered in the Lab:
- Where will the Creative Commons lead us?
- What is the interaction between open source software and Creative Commons contents?
- While it is clear that interaction exists between DRM-protected contents and traditional software, is it possible to determine the kind of interaction between some forms of DRM and open source software?
- Is it possible to develop other forms of software which are compatible with DRM-protected contents?
