The OSI (Open Source Intitiative) has approved version 2 of CERN’s Open Hardware License (OHL), meaning it conforms to its Open Source Definition and respects the ideals and ethos of the movement.
“Being able to cover multiple use cases including hardware, software and data under one licence – rather than trying to apply multiple licences to the various components – will be very useful as people develop their projects,” said Amanda Brock of OpenUK, an open-source advocacy body.
