Seller’s Remorse

Dave Winer placed one of the RSS specs under a CC Licence.

Now he wants to stop one particular group producing a revised spec.

So he’s asking how to do this, phrasing it as a dispute about a work under the license.

Modulo moral rights you can’t control how people use the work. And even if you could, they could just produce a new document for the spec.

This isn’t a problem with the licences. It’s a social issue.

    It’s rather amusing that Dave Winer is trying to stop people making new RSSes that he disagrees with – remember, he’s the one who maimed the good RSS (RDF Site Summary) by publishing RSS-2.
