RE: [ossig] IOSN Releases Draft Primer on Free/Open Source Software Licensing for Public Review



Dr Nah is statement is correct. 

If this 
"a simplistic view of things by the ministry that if not corrected, may
result in more fear and uncertainty over the use of OSS, 
especially among the local business community. "

So does one correct this, education and awareness will be good place to
start. Like the one done recently. Luckily they were not caught for
distributing what they think is a Copyrighted software :( ....sigh.

On 14/09/2004 10:09 IOSN said the following:
> IOSN has produced a primer on Free/Open Source Software Licensing and 
> an early pre-copyedited draft of the primer is now available for 
> public review and feedback.

would IOSN be kind enough to send a copy of the primer to the Domestic 
Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry's Selangor assistant state director 
Othman Ahmad ? he's proven himself an ignoramus on software licensing.
