There are many legal and moral considerations when discussing Open Source Software. There are also risks and costs associated with it. Once adopted this standard helps guide your organization to be an Open Source organization. For the people doing the work this will typically be a very welcome change. For those making decisions who aren't used to the transparency that Open Source demands, this change can be a very large one. The standard itself has multiple sections each for different target audiences. These target audiences are developers, architects / managers and lawyers.
