Title: OpenWetWare Seminar Series in Open Science
Speaker(s): John Wilbanks, Executive Director of Science Commons
Location: MIT Stata Center, 32-155
Abstract: This talk will lay out the basic intersections of property rights - copyrights, patents, and contracts - with scientific research. The talk will also examine how approaches inspired by the Free Software movement might help create a "research commons" of freely usable tools, papers and data. Specific case studies in biological materials transfer and text mining of gene interaction networks will be presented for discussion.
