The story is in the headline. Boundless "has released 18 open textbooks under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike (CC BY-SA), the same license used by Wikipedia. Schools, students and the general public are free to share and remix these textbooks under this license." The company expects to make money selling premium features. Park writes, "Boundless is already rolling out some of those premium features, including flashcards, study guides, and quizzes." Better than Flat World Knowledge.
