Cf. the Free Software Definition.
Internet Engineering Task Force
The 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 rules concerning the rights that are granted on its published documents.
