Open Source License
The Open Source License aims to maintain honey bees as a common good in the hands of the beekeeping community. It protects the traditional breeding activities with an open-source licence. This is the most efficient way to legally protect our bees from patenting and privatization.
Our aim is to maintain the genetic diversity in the hands of the beekeepers.
Open-source licensed bees are available for everyone. You may multiply the bees, sell them, pass them on, breed with them and enhance them without any restrictions. The licence grants new users the same rights that the previous owner enjoyed.
