Photo: ShutterstockFor a variety of reasons business is often seen as antipathetic to copyleft licensing. The GPL - the GNU General Public License - the most popular copyleft licence, sometimes gets a hostile press, often for reasons that don't reflect its real and positive effects.Arguments about the pros and cons of copyleft and permissive licensing go back a long way. A permissive licence is as it says, and allows the user to copy, repackage, sell, or change the code in any way the user likes, as long as some form of attribution is given.A copyleft licence, such as the GPL, gives similar rights but ensures reciprocity by obliging those who distribute the code to pass on the same rights to others, unimpaired, which by definition includes giving access to the source code and…

Hemat via Internet

Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono mengajak bangsa Indonesia berhemat, beberapa hari silam. SBYmemang menekankan soal menghemat anggaran belanja lewat kebijakan terkait BBM dan energi – khususnya bagi para pegawai pemerintah dan BUMN.Namun, terkait usaha menghemat kocek pemerintah itu, sebenarnya salah satu upaya lain yang penting dan mendesak untuk digalakkan adalah pemanfaatan teknologi Internet secara lebih efektif dan efisien.Sejauh ini memang sudah ada beberapa kegiatan pemerintah dengan menggunakan teknologi Internet. Selain surat elektronik (surel) alias e-mail dan penayangan 'brochure-ware' melalui berbagai situs kantor pemerintahan dan BUMN, syukurlah sudah ada program e-procurementatau pun e-government.Tetapi banyak hal masih perlu ditingkatkan penggunaannya. Misalnya, para pengambil keputusan tidak mesti melakukan rapat secara tatap-muka dalam setiap rapat kerja – kecuali ketika masalah yang dihadapi demikian pelik sehingga memerlukan kehadiran semua pihak.Namun bila…
