Potential advocacy areas
I added the following advocacy items, based on Dimi's suggestion on Advocacy Advisors. These are only a starting point for discussion -- feel free to add new topics or re-structure the list. - Stephen LaPorte (WMF) (talk) 20:42, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
- Fundamental goals
- Shorten (or prevent extension) of copyright terms
- Raising threshold for required added creativity
- Standardized limitations and exceptions
- Opt-in copyright system (like patent law)
- Issue-oriented goals
- Government Works (We need to discuss the relationship between government works/publicly funded works and what we want to go for.)
- Freedom of Panorama
- Orphan Works
- Open Access/Open Educational Resources (in OA we want freely licensed content, therefore I am grouping these two together)
There are two things about the above list I'd like to have discussed:
- Should we concentrate on government created works or on government funded works or on publicly funded works?
- Is it enough to talk about opt-in copyright or do we need to also specifically mention orphan works?
- I think each of these three need the attention. The first priority is the government created works.
- I think it would be good to mention orphan works as that is probably less problematic.
