    • 10. Introducing OSGeo
      • OSGeo is a non-profit organization created to support and build the highest-quality Open Source geospatial software.
      • 11. The foundation provides financial, organizational, and legal support to the broader Open Source geospatial community.
      • 12. It also serves as an independent legal entity to which community members can contribute code, funding and other resources, secure in the knowledge that their contributions will be maintained for public benefit.

    • 71. ? Wait a moment ...something is missing!
    • 72. What is Missing? Data! ?
    • 73. What's Missing? Data! ?
    • 74. What's Missing? Data! 27
    • 75. Why is that? Because Data is perceived as a property if it were a material thing. Something to sit on in a way that no one else can sit on it. This perception is wrong . Besitz! Eigentum! 27
    • 76. The Nature of Software is Immaterial
      • Software is immaterial ! It is not matter & not physical!
      • 77. As such it can be copied at a very low cost.
      • 78. This is a phenomenal feature because it multiplies by giving away. This is a foreign concept in a material world.
      • 79. Software is the only good that only grows by giving it away!
      & Data are 27 Software is untouchable
    • 80. The Nature of Software is Immaterial Software can be copied and transported using
      • Tape, Floppy disk, Hard disk, Memory Stick & Card, iPo/ad
      • 81. Wired network, Radio, Microwave, Satellite
      • 82. Email, FTP, HTTP, SCP, SMTP, …
      • 83. pretty much anything… even Printed Paper!
      & Data are 27 How can you restrict something that cannot be locked away?
    • 84. Legal Restriction: By Proprietary Licenses
      • You are not allowed to copy
      • 85. You are not allowed to modify
      • 86. You are not allowed to give away
      • 87. You are not allowed to improve
      • 88. You are not allowed to install
      • 89. You are not allowed to share
      • 90. You are not allowed to...
      27 The Proprietary (Software) License Model
    • 91. Political Restriction: By Embargo & Laws The US Export Restriction GeoDRM may be a good thing for:
        • Biological, Chemical, and Nuclear Weapons, ...
        • 92. War, Desease, Terrorism, ...
        • Maybe even Money, … ?
      But, as we have just learned: You cannot prevent Software from spreading anywhere! OpenStreetMap Digital Restrictions Management Maps 27 It does not Work for Software... at all!
    • 93. But: OSGeo is Truly Globalized Therefore OSGeo respects Local Rules and Regulations and Laws and Limitations.
      • OSGeo's Vision is free software and data for a better world
      • 94. OSGeo's Mission is to Educate why this make s Sense
      • 95. OSGeo's Goal is to make Spatial Data Accessible
      You can join efforts, whether as data Provider , User or Advocate that we 27
