New Discussion: Should Legal Informatics Technologies Be Open Source?
A new discussion of the question: Should Legal Informatics Technologies Be Open Source? is currently underway. The conversation was begun by Grant Vergottini of Xcential Group, with a new post at the Legix.info blog entitled To Go Open Source or Not? In that post, Mr. Vergottini poses two questions:
- Which data models should be used in legal informatics systems?
- Which aspects of these models should be open source?
Ari Hershowitz of Tabulaw — and a member of our community — has responded with his new post at the Tabulaw blog, entitled Legislative Model: How Much to Open Source?
This topic has been much discussed in the past in the free-access-to-law community, and on my blog, I’ve discussed several aspects of this topic. What are your views on this topic today?
