US Court rules in favor of “open source” copyright – Download Squad Being a bit of an old hippy I’m keen on open source. The problem is that, in America, nothing is accepted until they’ve had a load of over-paid lawyers argue about it in court. Fortunately that has now happened and open source copyright has now passed the Perry Mason test making it as legal as things get in the US. This might smack of angels on pins but it is really important: it means that those who spend a lot of time and effort on production can expect their rights to be protected – even if the only right they want is to be recognised.
