The ‘Dynamic Fermentation‘ design described in this website is based on the transformation of milk or another liquid substrate as a result of passing through a narrow tube containing a stationary or slow-moving resident bacterial or microbial culture. The website is published in the belief that the idea is entirely novel and as such is not covered by existing patents or other intellectual property restrictions and is registered as ‘prior art’ here.
The ‘Dynamic Fermentation‘ website is published in the hope that it will encourage individuals and small groups as defined below to experiment and investigate for themselves, the only limitation being that the license does not imply recognition or acceptance of the right to prevent others exercising the same right. The actual wording of the license is to be found here, with restrictions noted under section 4 ‘Limitations’ (an acknowledgement in any textual reference is on the other hand welcomed).
The peer production license is an example of the Copyfair type of license, in which only other commoners, cooperatives and nonprofits can share and re-use the material, but not commercial entities intent on making profit through the commons without explicit reciprocity.
