CERN has announced
the release of version 1.1 of its Open Hardware License
"'For us, the drive towards open hardware was largely motivated by
well-intentioned envy of our colleagues who develop Linux device-drivers,'
said Javier Serrano, an engineer at CERN's Beams Department and the founder
of the OHR. 'They are part of a very large community of designers who share
their knowledge and time in order to come up with the best possible
operating system. We felt that there was no intrinsic reason why hardware
development should be any different.'
" CERN also maintains the Open Hardware Repository
as a collecting point for free
