OSF Copyright Policy – June 2011

In June 2011, Open Society Foundations adopted a policy on copyright available here <http://www.soros.org/legal/intellectual-property-policy>. The aim of this policy is to ensure that copyrighted works produced by both OSF staff and grantees are disseminated and re-used as widely as possible, when this is appropriate. To that end, OSF has granted a Creative Commons license – a public license that encourages wide dissemination – to virtually the entirety of its own copyrighted works.

As a pilot program, OSF is including a clause into the grant agreements of certain programs, whereby grantees will advise OSF whether or not they will license the works created with OSF funds using a Creative Commons license. More information about the OSF copyright policy is available here: https://karl.soros.org/communities/osf-intellectual-property-policy/view.html
