Copyright Free

Open education - it's an ideal scenario - though with all the proposals around lifelong learning, open networking, classrooms without walls and so on, the whole issue of freeware/open-source at some point becomes an unavoidable part of the debate.

Of course we can't ignore the many who make their livings through genuinely protected works, but the tenet of availability and free distribution is at the heart of Copyleft. Ideally open*, ideally organic* and ideally without walls*.

*There are many accounts of this not being the case. These are cautious ideals, but ideals nonetheless.
