Inspired by the efforts of scientists around the world and the game-changing efforts of projects like the Creative Commons, the Wikipedia Foundation, and the Free Software movement, we hope to engage the larger community in an open and fruitful discussion on issues concerning the use and reuse of scientific data, including the balance of openness and how to make ends meet in an increasingly competitive environment.
