Re: [board-discuss] Agenda for TDF board meeting on Friday, August 14th at 1300 Berlin time (UTC+2)

Hey Kev,

thx a lot for taking the time & presenting your ideas during the board
call on Friday!

The TDF could engage into a legal arrangement with the co-operative
that implies control of actions based on a contractual service
arrangement.. but theoretically the board of the co-op would be run
independently. If it's the case that the TDF must control the entity
then forming a co-op may be an overly complicated matter.

Yeah, as discussed - I guess for the immediate needs TDF has for a
business entity, a cooperative would unnecessarily complicate matters.

But - going forward their will be other & differently-structured
challenges the community would want to tackle, and for that, a
cooperative might well be a good match.

And as Michael said during the board call, some more ptrs on how such
a thing would look like in Canada, and also how a potential
fully-owned subsidiary could be setup there, would be greatly

All the best, Thorsten
