Down and Out relicensed today
Matt Haughey, February 12th, 2004
Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, Cory Doctorow’s first novel released a little over a year ago, has just been relicensed under an Attribution-Noncommercial-ShareAlike license. Previously the book did not allow derivative works and any “lost chapters” or comic versions were unauthorized. With this change in place, the door is wide open to people writing prequels, sequels, and side stories, you can make a movie, cartoon, or graphic novel, you can write songs for it, rewrite it in haiku, and/or turn it all into one giant flowchart, as long as your new Down and Out-inspired work isn’t released in a commercial context or sold.
Let the re-creativity begin!
