I’m trying to add the Personal Genome Project Participant Genetic and Trait Dataset to a list of notable works whose copyrights were waived by its creator. The list can be viewed here.
I was wondering if you knew whose decision it was to use the CC0 waiver to release the copyright of the work and if you knew the date the waiver was implemented.
Any help would be great. Thanks!
