Copyright Issues

One of the things the organizing committee needs to do is set up standards/protocols for the TLOs and other content generated through this project. I believe some form of creative commons copyright that allows access and repurposing of the TLOs for non-commercial purposes is needed.

We may also need some form of MOU (Memorandum of Understanding), where lecturers who develop material agree up front that whatever they contribute can be reposted and repurposed at other sites.  That is, the whole idea of the Cheminformatics OLCC is to increase knowledge and exposure to new and emerging technologies.

That is, our objective is more than offering a course for two semesters, it is also using that course to develop material that can be of value and promote the science once the course is over.
