Book: Open Licensing for Cultural Heritage I have highlighted several books this year and here is one more.

Published in 2017, Open Licensing for Culture Heritage is by Gill Hamilton and Fred Saunderson.  According to the publisher:
Open Licensing for Cultural Heritage digs into the concept of ‘open’ in relation to intellectual property, providing context through the development of different fields, including open education, open source, open data, and open government. It explores the organizational benefits of open licensing and the open movement, including the importance of content discoverability, arguments for wider collections impact and access, the practical benefits of simplicity and scalability, and more ethical and principled arguments related to protection of public content and the public domain.
This book is available only in paperback.
