[ox-de-raw] Re: [ox-de] Burda goes open source fashion - do they?

Two young fashion designers of Burda have convinced their boss to support
Open Source fashion and introduce Open Source Patterns. They coexist with
proprietary patterns in an unclear way....

I wonder if anybody can do serious research on the implications of this
and the dynamics! I did not find any protection and aggregation mechanism
like GPL for "open source sewing patterns" so far

I tried looking at this in the 90s - there was already a long history of
clashes between a sharing design culture and magazines who would provide
forums and other support and then claim ownership of the designs.
Here's a typical story from the USA:

There had then been attempts to create gpl style licenses, but people
were not interested and they disappeared. That seems to be true even
now: eg.

run by Kake who is a programmer and knows all about licenses..
