Doug Reil, leader of North Atlantic Books, publisher of THE OPEN SOURCE EVERYTHING MANIFESTO: Transparency, Truth, & Trust (Evolver Editions, 2012) has agreed to revert all translation right back to the author.
Chinese, French, and Spanish translations are under discussion, all under Creative Commons license, all using volunteers or state-funded translators. I am seeking volunteers to serve as focal points for the translation of the book into other languages and volunteers to do one chapter each for each book that has a focal point established. All translators will be personally acknowledged by name at the beginning of each book for which the contribute a partial translation.
Publishers committing to offer a free version online while also publishing commercially are welcome to get in touch.
