German Association Free Education takes position on OER and Creative Commons

The German Association Free Education responds to a position paper of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder in Germany on open educational resources (OER). The association agrees with most arguments, sees, however, the idea of a German variant of Creative Commons critical because this is likely to prevent global exchange of OER. I share the association's suggestion to remove legal fuzziness of the license by proper exegeses and best practice recommendations.
