Verification is optional and I don't see anyone disputing this. There
is indeed a need for verification because that is what people want.
There are many different contexts for the word "need" and I think you
are assuming the legal context when I mean a communal context.
I remember Mike saying in a previous email, in this discussion, that
the CC provide verification because people want it, not because its
legally required. If clients want something, that becomes a need to
the community and it's just like someone including their email address
or website with their GPL license. This was only meant to be a loose
example and nothing more.
I suggest you read the MP3 license specs here:
and take special note of this:
" *If* "verify at" exists in TCOP, everything after it must be the
metadata URL and the preceding link must be the license URL. "
Back to my first email, the issue of optional verification has already
been resolved with MP3 licenses.
