Open data is the philosophy that certain data should be free from legal restrictions — copyright, patents, etc. Proponents of the open data movement believe that particular data should be universally available for sharing, remixing, and reuse.
Open data abides by principles similar to other ‘Open’ movements — open access, open content, open source, etc.
