==Free Art==
 
  
There is no Free Art Definition, but the [http://artlibre.org/licence/lal/en/ Free Art License] is in the spirit of this definition.
 
 
==Free Software==
 
 
Cf. the [http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html Free Software Definition].
 
 
==Internet Engineering Task Force==
 
 
The [http://ietf.org/ Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)], which is the body governing the drafting and evolution of Internet protocols - without which the Internet, an unified interconnection of physically disparate networks, couldn't even exist -, has [http://www.rfc-editor.org/copyright.html rules] concerning the rights that are granted on its published documents. Although a [http://www.rfc-editor.org/copyright.html#derivs subtle restriction] on derivative works makes some of these documents not completely free, it is a good example of how Free Content's essential freedoms can be fruitfully applied to promote scientific and technical progress.
 
 
==Open Knowledge==
 
 
Cf. the [http://www.okfn.org/okd/definition.html Open Knowledge Definition].
 
 
==Open Source==
 
 
Cf. the [http://www.opensource.org/docs/definition.php Open Source Definition], but note the [http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-software-for-freedom.html philosophical differences] to the Free Software movement; also note that the term is, in spite of its definition, somewhat diluted, especially in contexts other than software.
 
 
==Free/Libre Knowledge==
 
 
[http://wikieducator.org/Libre_knowledge Libre Knowledge] is championed by [http://www.libre.org Libre.org] and others such as the [http://freeknowledge.eu/ Free Knowledge Institute].
