Cynics out there may view this as a way for GoPets to save tens of thousands of dollars on legal bills, but it seems like the effort has some real community-oriented purpose as well, and the fact that the documents will be released under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License inclines me to credit Bethke with a “do well by doing good” kind of plan.
The project is already being both supported and criticized for trying to be an “Avatar Bill of Rights,” but reading Bethke’s post, that doesn’t seem like the main purpose his offer. It is worth dropping by, whatever your perspective, as there’s an interesting ongoing discussion. And you could even pick up a few bucks (or Gold Shells, I suppose, if you’d rather) for pitching in.
