Okay, I often find myself woidnrneg What can I do for Dave Sim today? and look, finally an answer to that question.Dave, I spend my time writing software for open-source projects, mostly stuff related to the Android source tree. Android and the Linux kernel that it runs are founded upon open-source principles. That was a point of contention with the free software disciples, but I will spare you that inside-baseball.The point it that open-source differs from free in that it is made to appeal to businesses and others who would like to profit from their software. The idea is that by offering software free of cost, you derive your profit from the support, maintenance and documentation side of things. Software is allowed to be sold for a reasonable amount to cover packaging, distribution and other costs.I was thinking about whether this approach could be taken with Cerebus. The phone-book sales would not be affected, as they are sold at a reasonable cost already. You could open-source just the digital copies, making them free to download to any that want to read them.The benefits are that you are side-stepping the piracy issue and expanding your user-base by offering the digital issues free. That user base can then be used to derive income through the extras, i.e. your archives, signage and audio-visual projects. The copyright can be maintained while open-sourcing just your actual digital issues.Think of the expanded user-base that opening up your digital editions to the comics world could bring. The open source community believes that getting a user base is the key to profitablity. This could energize your current base and exponentially expand the new readers. This has the vast benefit of not compromising any of your self-publishing ideals. It would be a bold experiment, to be sure, but there are over 1 million Android activations every minute. I know you have spoken about entering Cerebus into the public domain when you and Gerhard pass, this is akin to getting a jump on the process.Look into the GNU public license, Apache and some others. There are a bunch of options, including creating your own license. This opens up the frankly incredible fanfic type sequels, but I gather you have been okay with that anyway. You can require that any modifications or improvements be offered only separately from your extant work as a patch file.This would be a bold move, I recognize. But someone is going to do this soon. What do you think?
