MIT rules: Some Clarifications Needed
Saturday, September 18, 2004  2:10:00 AM

by S. Ganguli for Prometheus_Media



April Fools
.. Recently MIT OCW Vol 2 (9) (dated Sep 17, 2004) cited.....


The MIT Open Course Ware permitted the use of its material under very generous terms. Same rules will be applicable to my writings for the Prometheus Media.

Without the technological development around MIT (USA) and the subsidy to the internet by the American government, I cannot e-publish.

My material can be used for translation/teaching without paying royalty, attributing the source to me, that satisfied the share- alike (mutual) criteria.

Only I have two doubts in MIT rules:
1. A more precise definition on profit is required; we have to define a minimum subsistence allowance of a person who copies the material. Based on my personal survey, I have put this minimum at $300 per month for Chicagoans and Rs. 3500 to Rs.4000 for Bangaloreans. Or in other words, I suggest that if some one is making (net) money more than the minimum allownace, he is making 'profit'.

2. Secondly, the persons who prepare the texts are often paid salary by the MIT, corporate bodies and the Government. Something reasonable should be done about people like me.

Thanks.
Subrata (B.) Ganguli
