Policy Brief

Open Standards, Open Source, and Open Innovation

This report (also available in a Chinese Language version) details the benefits of openness in three areas - open standards, open-source software, and open innovation - and examines the major issues in the debate over whether openness should be encouraged or not. The report explains each of these three kinds of openness, details the public policy issues involved with each, and provides policy recommendations for dealing with these issues. The report was prepared by CED's Digital Connections Council (DCC).
