The Open Knowledge Definition aims to give a definition of the 'open'

Functionally, it is a bit like the definitions for Free/Open Source
software - providing criteria for determining which licenses, legal
tools and terms and conditions make the material they are applied to
'open'. It covers everything from the UK Click Use PSI License to some
(but not all) of the Creative Commons licenses.

Is this of interest?
