This proposed grant is to supplement support to the Open Courseware Consortium in establishing legal best practices for OER content repositories to leverage Internet cloud based platforms. This project will bring in legal experts to understand and document issues and solutions to indemnity and liability challenges as they relate to OER in commercial cloud platforms. After significant effort, the legal fees were higher than originally scoped and the project requires these supplemental funds.
