In the summer of 2018, Michel Bouwens introduced us to the “coopyright” licensing model. It was founded jointly within the framework of the association “La Coop des Communs”.

Since it was only available in French, we translated it into English. The drafts have just gone online on the association’s website: Here you can find the English translation, and here the German one (still in a somewhat raw stage).

For us the model seems very interesting, although we are aware that this approach limits the actual open source idea. The unique thing about it is that different actors are assigned different license conditions simultaneously.

We have noticed that there is a great interest in further discussion. Nicole Alix of La Coop des Communs therefore suggested setting up a forum. We will report as soon as we know more.
