Open Source

An open source is a software which allows the public to modify its source code and re-disperse it through the internet. However, knowing a source code means an ability to develop a similar one and further, it provides an access to a technology which originates from the source code. For this reason, most businesses try to conceal their sources and if they open it to the public, they are likely to require a license fee.
On the other hand, the idea of open source is that the act of modifying and redeveloping a source code freely leads to an enhancement of a software.

Net Neutrality

Net neutrality can be defined ‘free and open internet’. It requiers all the contents of internet to be treated equally by internet providers without any discrimination. In this internet-oriented era, the information gap problem is now increasing, which makes the concept of ‘net neutrality’ become more important.

On the other hand, there are acts agianst net neutrality such as SOPA and PIPA. These regulations maintain the protection of one’s copy rights and intellectual property rights.

It is true that copy rights and intellectual property rights should be protected since the information contains all the efforts and exertions of providers. But, the public must be avoided by the exclusion of specific information and inequality of access to the information.
