The New York Times happily declares that open content is a commercial enterprise. As summarized by Creative Commons blog:
- sharing does not preclude making money. To the contrary, artists have long been making CC licensing part of their business strategies,
- there needs to be an ecosystem built around open materials, and businesses are an important part of that ecosystem.
- free can refer to price and freedom. Businesses, universities, and others can charge a price for access or services around OER.
