Open Hardware Distribution and Documentation working group: Governing a central organization

  • How does a cooperative governance structure function within an international context? What is the value of a cooperative in different countries? Tax laws vary in different countries, meaning that the central administrative structure would need to be aware of the varying tax regulations for it’s manufacturing partners.
  • Will cooperative members consist of individuals or businesses? The group agrees that it would be best to have both options
  • How do we avoid situations where it is easier for members from certain countries to join than others?
