License Zero
"Feel overwhelmed by business-driven demand for open software, maintenance, and support? License Zero offers all the tools you need to go in business yourself, and start receiving compensation for your contributions.

Tired of seeing your open code end up in closed systems, with no contribution or support flowing back? License Zero puts the teeth back in copyleft, requiring community members to give back to Open Source or support those who do.

Want a simple, low-friction way to support maintainers of open code you use and rely on, when you can’t give back in kind? License Zero makes it easy, right from the command line. "

An interesting idea. Not sure how it differs from the GPL in practice; what counts is enforcement in terms of actually getting people to give you money, surely? Just because you have a license doesn't mean shit if you don't have a trade body enforcing that people pay ... not that I like such bodies for 1 second"

Books from 1923 to 1941 Now Liberated! | Internet Archive Blogs
The Internet Archive is now leveraging a little known, and perhaps never used, provision of US copyright law, Section 108h, which allows libraries to scan and make available materials published 1923 to 1941 if they are not being actively sold. Elizabeth Townsend Gard, a copyright scholar at Tulane University calls this “Library Public Domain.”  She and her students helped bring the first scanned books of this era available online in a collection named for the author of the bill making this necessary: The Sonny Bono Memorial Collection. Thousands more books will be added in the near future as we automate. We hope this will encourage libraries that have been reticent to scan beyond 1923 to start mass scanning their books and other works, at least up to 1942.

An obscure copyright law is letting the Internet Archive distribute books published 1923-1941 / Boing Boing
Section 108h of the Copyright Act gives libraries the power to scan and serve copies of out-of-print books published between 1923 and 1941; it's never been used before but now the mighty Internet Archive is giving it a serious workout, adding them to their brilliantly named Sonny Bono Memorial Collection (when Bono was a Congressman, he tried to pass a law that would extend copyright to "forever less a day" and was instrumental in moving millions of works from the public domain back into copyright, "orphaning" them so that no one could preserve them and no one knew who the copyrights belonged to).
