Lawrence Lessig (sxsw speaker) has started a new venture called Creative Commons. Its purpose will be to "...make available flexible, customizable intellectual-property licenses that artists, writers, programmers and others can obtain free of charge to legally define what constitutes acceptable uses of their work." Sounds like it will be working toward a balance between open source licensing and standard commercial licensing. I hope we get more info at his presentation.
