Hello,

Study rules say that "For the purpose of consistency, all submitters are required to populate their designs with content from the same study" and that "all entries are required to be submitted under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License." The same study provided is titled " Phase 3, Double
Blind, Placebo Controlled Study of Maintenance Pemetrexed plus Best Supportive Care versus Best Supportive Care Immediately Following Induction Treatment with Pemetrexed + Cisplatin for Advanced Non Squamous Non Small Cell Lung Cancer" and you provided the Canadian affiliate version of this form.

Is the original ICD for this study CC-By-3.0 or some equivalent compatible license? What about this derivative version - the "Canadian affiliate" remix? If the answer to either of these questions is no, then that means that submissions to this challenge either will have to exclude incorporating this non-CC material to remain themselves CC-compatible or submissions to this competition cannot be CC-licensed since they would contain work for which all rights are reserved by the copyright holder.

Thoughts?

Lane, I am the Eli Lilly sponsor of this challenge. You pose a good question. I will look into how we fully support re-use and re-mix of the ICD and protocol content for the purpose of this challenge and beyond. Look for a more complete answer later this week.

Thank you. That satisfies my question.
