Independent Workers’ Union of Great Britain

BGV and the ‘Tech4good’ sector definitely need to address the issue of
ownership urgently. Its all very well borrowing the rhetoric and style of
the VC backed startup sector, but if you structure the businesses the same

Would be happy to help with any efforts of this type.
I spoke to the founder of organise a couple of weeks ago, we’ve got plans to work together, I’m talking to their tech guy when he gets back from holiday. It’s not directly the same but I’m thinking that it could be synergistic.
I’ll look at Alpha Communication, maybe they’d be interested
I’d suggest that you should consider the GPL (or the AGPL) — the reason that corporations love the Apache / MIT / BSD style licenses is that they allow code to be privatised — the GPL doesn’t, it uses copyright law to enforce sharing and I believe this is more aligned with the spirit of co-operation.
