  2. 2. Open Source/Community Source • Open-source software is computer software with its source code made available with a license in which the copyright holder provides the rights to study, change, and distribute the software to anyone and for any purpose. • Community Source builds on the practices of open source communities. A distinctive characteristic of community source as opposed to plain open source is that the community includes some organizations or institutions that are committing their resources, in the form of human resources or other financial elements.
