Greetings The above is a tablefish to sift licenses through. Put license in and map to the kinds of rights it specifies Use table to generate an access model similar to unix file access rights. eg. GPL is 77733 The condition that the source is released enables freedom for derivatives of distributed works. Public domain is 77770 no guarantee of freedom for derivatives. A printed book is 77700 if it has no right to modify or distribute but is able to be sold second hand. These codes are a machine readable or search engine readable way to start sorting information so citizens/users/adapters/customers can choose their information and technology purchases in an informed way. the idea is that any license could be mapped in this way. This is a coarse filter to help people identify what kinds of licenses meet their needs. What do you think? How should it differ?
