Open Standards - Open Source - Open Innovation
On April 17, 2006, CED released Open Standards, Open Source, and Open Innovation: Harnessing the Benefits of Openness.
"The new report 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). The DCC is a group of information technology experts from CED-affiliated companies established to advise CED on the policy issues associated with the digital economy and emerging technologies. CED Trustee Paul M. Horn, Senior Vice President, Research at IBM, is Chair of the DCC. Elliot Maxwell, a key advisor on digital economy issues in the Clinton Administration, served as project director."
