Are you suggesting that Open Server allows payment-based courses? So, only difference between open server and closed one, is sharebility of course data?
Yes and yes. I have come to conclusion that it gets closer to Open Sourse and Authoright ideology this way. Paid course changes little in the environment of an open server, because it can be copied and offered for free, and vise versa. This way market forces and general public attitudes toward authorship come forward.

Or at least it's not going to be integrated into actual app functionality. In other words - there is going to be no direct relationship between payment and access to any of the app objects. If you want to have more options, please let us know what could that be?I put some ideas in the Payment section. I'm not sure about sponsors, specifically. 1) They jus have to be listed in some proper GUI place of the app. 2) And there has to be easy to use built in the site mechanism for sponsorship, which must include comunications with us and/or host of the specific UU instance.
