Doesn't open licensing provide the opportunity for the artist to retain
moral rights and choice of licence while also making terms which are
explicit about wider participation in that work?
Open licences are a way for an artist to retain attirbution and reputation
around their work while also participating in a context where the work has a
life beyond single authorship?
This could make it less of a priority for institutions to claim the
copyright to a collective entity?
Perhaps I am missing something in the local context sorry.
