The superstars who created Polis gave their genius away – for free – for us all to use. Why did they do this? Answer: to make the world a better place. Cleverly, the creators of Polis copylefted – rather than copyrighted – their code. In simple terms, this means that anyone is free to use Polis, but if any improvements are made, then the modifications must also be made available for the world. The licence governing Polis can be found here. At the Crowd Wisdom Project, we are fully committed to enhancing Polis, in adherence with the licence, to the benefit of humanity. The world needs more people like the creators of Polis at the Computational Democracy Project.
