I'm involved in the process, and there may be other individuals from CC HQ
or our affiliate teams also on this list. We of course welcome all input
during this process over the next year. The wiki page on the 4.0 process
regarding sui generis database rights is
http://wiki.creativecommons.org/4.0/License_subject_matter. The primary
vehicle for discussion is the CC-licenses public email list.

> Creative Commons is reviewing the CC license with the plan of releasing a
> CC v. 4. One of the issues is database rights.
> Is anyone on this list actively involved in the revision process?

> Creative Commons is starting to work on a version 4.0 in part because:
> The treatment of sui generis database rights in the 3.0 licenses
> continues to be a show-stopper for many, including governments
> in Europe. This fosters an environment in which custom licenses
> proliferate, inevitably resulting in silos of
> incompatibly-licensed content that cannot be maximally shared
> and remixed.
> Now is the time to get involved in the CC v4.0 process:
