Open source (unlike public domain, say) does not disclaim any notion of property rights. The most succinct way I can find to describe it is in the O'Reilly book Intellectual Property and Open Source (which is worth a read): "a legal construct for co-operation and trade in intellectual property". At the heart of the model is a set of licenses with provisions designed to make this kind of software development work effectively.

That said, I agree with you; this new administration needs to understand open source well, and embrace it and similar models.

Fair enough, the wording was a little loose. But I'm glad the point was understood.


If you are willing to buy a house, you will have to get the loans. Furthermore, my mother always uses a small business loan, which seems to be the most rapid.
