Is sciencecommons developing a licence which forces everyone developing 
derivative work based on free knowledge to also publish their research 
results under the same conditions similar to the GPL or CC sharealike 
licences? This would effectively hinder the possibility to get a patent 
granted for any product based on such derivative work, say for example a 
pharmacon.
