A. Legal Aspects of publishing, sharing and blogging science ā€“ Victoria Stodden

Description: Not giving legal advice, but discussion of CC-licences, copyright, Fair Use, etc.

Discuss:

How copyright is a barrier to sharing of papers, code, data and what we can do about it. Who owns our scientific work?

Iā€™m also interested in concerns researchers have over code and data sharing, and in particular what type of restrictions would make them more willing to share, if any.

Licensing is a tool that can, along with freeing the work for reuse, encourage attribution. Changing norms of data and code citation is a salient issue and legal attribution may be able to help.
