Thanks for the question. The time-limited proposal was not addressed in the
initial draft for a variety of reasons. Most importantly, our thinking was
that this solution would introduce significant complexity into the
licenses. We also noted that we already have the CC+ mechanism, which
enables licensors to grant additional permissions beyond those built into
the standard license terms.
Nonetheless, we are happy to have the discussion continue. We've added a
section for pros/cons
the 4.0 Sandbox page relating to the proposal. We have added a few pros and
cons, but we encourage people to add more considerations there.
One additional possibility is that the Additional Terms provision we are
planning to include in the next draft could enable licensors to implement
time-limited conditions. If this seems worthwhile, we welcome ideas on how
it might work.
