Artists' Rights for Open Source

An interesting article from the trusty BBC found in tonight's browsing around the web:

Larry Lessig (according to the article) explains that even free licences set conditions on the use of copyrighted work and if you violate those conditions, the licence disappears and you're a plain ol' copyright infringer.

As the most important currency in the open source community is attribution, this is an important ruling.
