A group of college students published under a Creative Commons license the recipe for a beer they brewed. The license allows anyone to use the recipe “for pleasure or profit.”
Here’s part of the Wired article on the news:
Their inspiration wasn’t just to get drunk, but to see what happens when an open-source structure is applied to a universally known product like beer.
“Why not take the legal framework, the open-source licenses, and apply them on analog products?” said Rasmus Nielsen, a member of Superflex, an art organization that helped create the beer in conjunction with a student group called Vores Øl (Our Beer).
