FOSS: Open Content
This 2007 e-primer from the Asia-Pacific Development Information Programme (APDIP) and International Open Source Network (IOSN) introduces the concept of Open Content. It begins by examining the context in which the Open Content movement has emerged within the broader historical context of copyright’s relation to the public domain. It discusses how copyright has developed over the past decades, looks at some myths of copyright, and explores how the Open Content movement is reshaping ideas of creativity and knowledge creation using various case studies. It raises implications for policy makers and the advantages that the Open Content model may offer, especially for developing countries.
