Breakthrough

It now feels like I am seeing light in terms of accessing some literature around IP and traditional knowledge. I think the inquiry may change to include the policies and protocols we need in place to protect and promote indigenous knowledge in a school context. 
I am at a three day residential from tomorrow, so I look forward to catching up on discussions when I return.

  1. Kia ora Wayne,

    I'd be keen to know to what extent the Creative Commons licensing frameworks could support the policy protocols needed to protect and promote indigenous knowledge. As a member of the advisory board of Creative Commons Aotearoa and the UNESCO-COL Chair in OER -- I have an active interest in your research project. We have a few resources which summarise the Creative Commons concept which may lead you to relevant sources: http://wikieducator.org/Creative_Commons_unplugged/Introduction

  2. An afterthought,

    In terms of the New Zealand school context the New Zealand Government Open Access Licensing Framework (NZGOAL) encourages school Boards of Trustees to adopt open licensing of intellectual property. A number of New Zealand schools have already done so. So in terms of the arena of change at the Government / Parliamentary level there is already an enabler for open licensing of IP.
