Video : What Is Open Source Hardware?

What is Open Source Hardware? There has been much conversation over the definition, use of, and the meaning behind that phrase.  Some in the community such as Josef Prusa, creator of the highly popular and widely used 3d printer the Prusa Mendel, have criticized other members, Makerbot.com, in the community over their definition or interpretation of "Open Source Hardware".

This prompted for the creation of the youtube channel OpenSourceHardware by the Open Source Hardware Association and below is their first video of what Open Source Hardware is defined as.  

The OSHWA even go back to the creation of the bicycle as an example of how Open Source Hardware can help everyone and the benefits of why you too should go Open Source! 

What will you share!?
