Ok, so I said that +Peter Suber's comments on the draft RCUK Access policy would be a good basis for a community consensus response - but that I felt I should write my own response. But then I thought...why not use Peter's comments as the basis for a community consensus response?

So I have taken Peter's text, modified part of it slightly and posted in a GoogleDoc that can be edited by anyone with the link and I propose to iterate on that based on the rules I've proposed in that document.

Delighted to "seed the crowd" this way. Extra delighted (no sarcasm) that you didn't even ask. Slowing everything down to ask would slow everything down.

BTW 1: My post had an implicit CC-BY, and I'm glad you recognized that. But when it's important to give a G+ post an explicit CC-BY, can we do that without manually hitting all the keystrokes? Can we automatically assign a default license to all our G+ posts? I did that on my old blog, and I'd like to treat G+ as my new blog.

BTW 2: I'm sure the group result will be better than the original.
I have given an implicit CC-BY to my Google+ posts by including the information in my profile, but that text does not get attached to the post itself, so I guess to be formal, you'd need to tag each post/comment with a licence (link to CC licence).
In practice, I regard everything I post publicly here as CC, but not necessarily what I post to private circles.
