Is there a copyleft/open source license for "only worker-owned organizations can use this for profit"? I feel like that's really what we need.
@clarity there is!! I don't remember the name but iirc it was similar to GPL v3 but more restrictive
@xenon ooooh yes these appear to be very nearly what I want. My dream license probably also bans non worker-owned NGOs but I'd probably be able to work with these.
@clarity I seem to remember there is more than one, but all I can dig up right now is this discussion on "copyfarleft" or "copyfair" licenses:
I'll boost, and when I get off work I'll see if I can't dig up the other ones.
@cstanhope thank you!
@clarity I have not found what I'm looking for in regards to licenses. I have one more place to look, but I won't be able to check until tomorrow. I'll try to remember.
(I apologize. The past couple of years have seen my personal notes become completely disorganized.)
@clarity Okay, I've exhausted all the places I keep notes. The above license is the only specific one I've found. I'm pretty sure I've come across another one, but I can't find it. Good luck in your search!
@valhalla I really don't care about the semantics of whether it is "actually" open-source.
@clarity you might be able to achieve something like that with cross-license collaboratives, not sure yet https://writing.kemitchell.com/2019/10/05/XLC.html
