Open Source And Industry Alliance (OSAIA)

Overview: The Open Source & Industry Alliance (OSAIA) advocated the interests of the companies, organizations, and individuals that comprised the open source community. The Alliance promoted collaborative software development and advocated on its behalf before any relevant government bodies. OSAIA promoted free and open software markets through sensible procurement, intellectual property and competition policies, and was dedicated to the creation, use, and sustainability of open source software. The Alliance believed open source licenses ensured the freedom to employ open source software for any purpose; to study how a program works by accessing the source code so any and all can adapt it to their needs; to redistribute open source software without continuing royalty obligations to the original developer; and to improve the software and release those improvements to the public. OSAIA was a subsidiary of the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA). *Inactive
