    You forgot to write it down, huh?

  2. Cory released the speech under CC BY-NC-ND. Presumably the ND is so that nobody can put words in his mouth? On the other hand, Wikisource seems to define ND as “Non-derivative criteria limit or disallow modifications, translations, or derived works such as musical arrangements, dramatizations, fictionalizations, motion picture versions, sound recordings, art reproductions, abridgments, condensations, or annotations.” (see here) I don’t see why Cory would prohibit that. So I’m not clear on what ND actually means.

    • Cory Doctorow says:

      I didn’t release it at all. The video was released by CCC (the person who makes the recording holds the copyright). The copyright in the text is CC-BY (it was never written down, I spoke from bullet-point notes).

      • By “text”, do you mean the speech as actually rendered by you at that time (i.e. not your notes)? Could, then, Joshua (if he were to agree) also release the transcript under CC-BY despite the fact that the transcript was based off a CC-BY-NC-ND work (which requires all derivative works such as transcripts to be licensed also under CC-BY-NC-ND)?

        My ultimate goal here is to see if the transcript could loaded onto Wikisource.

        The reason I’m interested is that I also recently translated your Scroogled story into Latin, but the license has to be CC-BY-NC because that is the original license. Which means the translation could not be put up on Wikisource (which also means, sadly, I’d have to host the translation elsewhere).

        Damn extemporizers…

  3. With Joshua’s change to the CC-BY license, the text is now up on Wikisource. Another work by Cory in his sadly sparse Wikisource page!

  4. I have also marked up the speech in Wikisource with various helpful wiki links in case a Congressman who is proud that they are not a nerd (or more likely, a staffer) reads the transcript.

  5. BTW, Cory, when you mentioned all the organizations supporting digital freedom (EFF, Bits of Freedom, and so on), I got them all except for “Nets Politique” Was that supposed to be Netpolitique?

    I added the transcript to the recording on YouTube:

    The timing was done automatically via YouTube’s upload transcript feature. If you want to improve the timing, just talk to us. We can provide an SRT file.
