"BurdaStyle is a collaborative DIY fashion platform inspired by open-source philosophy, which advocates sharing intellectual property and allowing the members of the public to adapt it to their specific needs. BurdaStyle encourages its members to remove copyright restrictions from their designs. These open-source sewing patterns are then free to be used as the basis for new designs that can be sewn and even sold by other community members. Nora and Benedikta will discuss their successes and failures in building a platform for a creative community to share instructions and techniques, creating a balance between open collaboration and authorship, and enabling a true networked design process."
