O'Reilly Copyrights Like It's 1790
Missed this one when it broke, but tech book publisher O'Reilly & Associates announced at their Emerging Technology Conference last week that they will be applying the Founders' Copyright to all of their books.
Developed by Creative Commons, the Founders' Copyright is a legal option that allows copyright holders to voluntarily release their works to the public after the period envisioned in the original 1790 US copyright law--14 years, with the option of one 14-year extension. O'Reilly will be releasing its books under the Creative Commons Attribution license, which permits others to copy and distribute work as long as they give the original author and publisher credit.
