Abstract: "Public-domain information may be defined in legal terms as sources and types of data and information whose uses are not restricted by statutory intellectual property (IP) laws and other legal regimes, and that are accordingly available to the public for use without authorization. Open access may be defined as proprietary information that is made openly and freely available on the Internet or on other media by the rights holder, but that retains some or all of the exclusive property rights that are granted under statutory IP laws. Open access may be provided by all types of public and private sector sources, including those in the public domain."
