Proposal: The Economy of Ideas

Vetoed and, er, subsequently self-killed.  Brendan

Add the following rule, “Sale of Rights:”

If a Corporation owns Production Rights to a Product or Naming Rights to a Daemon, they may share such rights with any other Corporation at any time.  To do so, the sharing Corporation must make a blog post stating with whom they are sharing the rights, and edit the relevant Production Rights or Naming Rights line of the Ruleset accordingly.

A Corporation may give up the Production Rights to a Product or the Naming Rights to a Daemon if it wishes—again, by posting as much, and editing the relevant Rights line.

Along the same lines, a Corporation may put Production Rights it owns in the Public Domain, or make Naming Rights it owns Public Knowledge.

“Escrow” should take care of the rest.

This information should be tracked somewhere other than the Ruleset.  Allowing routine edits to the Ruleset is extremely dangerous.  I’d suggest using the Inventory page instead.

Hmm, the Ruleset allows me to post again if my Proposals have been self-killed but not if they’ve been vetoed, so against  against  against
