Open Office and other tools…
What is Open Source
• Open source software (OSS) began as a
marketing campaign for free software[1].
• OSS can be defined as computer software for
which the human-readable source code is
made available under a copyright license (or
arrangement such as the public domain) that
meets the Open Source Definition.
What is The Open Source Definition?
Open source doesn't just mean access to the source code. The
distribution terms of open-source software must comply with
the following criteria:
•
•
•
•
Free Redistribution
Program to include Source Code
Derived Works permitted
No Discrimination Against Persons or Groups
What is The Open Source Definition?
• No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor
• Distribution of License
The rights attached to the program must apply to all to
whom the program is redistributed without the need
for execution of an additional license by those
• License Must Not Be Specific to a Product
The rights attached to the program must not depend on
the program's being part of a particular software
distributionparties.
What is The Open Source Definition?
• License Must Not Restrict Other Software
The license must not place restrictions on other software
that is distributed along with the licensed software. For
example, the license must not insist that all other
programs distributed on the same medium must be
open-source software.
• License Must Be Technology-Neutral
No provision of the license may be predicated on any
individual technology or style of interface.
