Should publicly funded software be copylefted? Tell us why (or how) schools, libraries and local governments should be writing code to serve the public.

@conservancy IMO publicly funded works should be public domain. It's the only sane option.

@mansr Maybe you should submit a talk about it? I think many folks would like to hear about why public domain rather than copyleft is the right choice.

@conservancy Simply put, publicly funded works should benefit everybody. Every copyleft licence excludes some segment, for instance users of other copyleft licences.
