I understand the QRpedia software is freely reusable under the MIT
License, today. In other words – people in Brazil
or India are able to use
the QRpedia technology too, aren't they? And they will always be able to
use it whenever they want, without ever having to ask the current rights
holders or Wikimedia UK for permission first, correct?
To further clarify - we are not really talking about intellectual
property rights. We are talking about the domains currently used to provide
the qrpedia service, which are qrpedia.org
Thanks Chris. That makes more sense. :)
Actually, one more question. Chris Owen says on the DYK talk page
that Roger is apparently being *paid for the use of these domains*, which I
understand link the users of mobile devices to Wikipedia content. Does that
mean that, once the transfer of these sites to Wikimedia UK is complete,
Wikimedia UK will be charging customers of these sites to generate revenue?
Or will QRpedia thereafter be a free encyclopedia?
Or is Chris Owen altogether mistaken about QRpedia being a paid service?
