I thought a simple "Sure, free stuff is ok" was a bit too simple in the real world of business. Flynn, I hope you can hammer out a deal with Matt over this (but it looks like it's going to be very difficult).
We are currently looking into this. We have no wish to hammer fan-based publications, but now the TLL and OGL have been released for Traveller, we have to be very sure about what can be done, and how.
To give an example. . .
Suppose Stellar Reaches (or A N Other web site) produces a new rules article for Traveller - they would use the OGL to do so (no getting round that, it is what it is there for - though they need not use the TLL).
Now suppose, in the same issue (or the same article!), they also have a piece on how Scouts, say, interact with the rest of the OTU. If that piece also becomes Open Content, it creates a massive problem for us, as people could use it as an end-around to sell OTU material. Which is a no-no (and not because we are greedy - the agreement we have with Marc, indeed one of the fundamental points of the new Traveller, is that OTU material only comes from one source).
There are possible ways round this, but we need to work through them so that everyone is happy.
Basically, someone needs to get the guy behind Stellar Reaches to contact me
