IMS (GLC)have just announced announced plans to initiate a pilot project in the distribution of interoperability specifications under a form of Creative Commons license. According to the press release “IMS GLC has conceptualized a novel approach that may be applicable to many standards organizations.”
I’m not exactly sure just what these novel approaches are, and even less so about how they would actually work. But not doubt we will be hearing more in coming months. Any moves towards more openness of the standards agenda can only be a move in the right direction.
