I don't really know much about Futurelab, but I am appalled that they're cranking out reports like Opening Education - Designing for social justice: people, technology, learning and Designing educational technologies for social justice which, according to my scans and searches, have no mention of free or open source software licensing whatsoever. As Futurelab says, "Being concerned with matters of social justice involves being concerned with the unequal distribution of resources and power in society." Getting users to participate in the design of software (in particular) without giving them the freedom to use, study, redistribute and improve what they've helped to create is a pre-digital concept of social justice, and in some cases flat-out exploitation. I don't expect these papers to be about software licensing, but software licensing plays such a central role in these questions that its omission hardly seems like a coincidence.
Is Futurelab ignorant, or corrupt?
