“Open means anyone can freely access, use, modify, and share for any purpose (subject, at most, to requirements that preserve provenance and openness).” - The Open Definition
Open Source Dharma lineages openly share teaching content, in a way that conforms to the standard above, which itself comes out of the open source software movement.
The “most open” Creative Commons Licenses meet this definition. With these licenses one can share content openly to the public domain, the most open possible license, and/or can require attribution (provenance), and/or require that others share any derivative content under a similarly open license, known as share-alike or copyleft.
