    Traditionally, copyright owners sold their copyrighted material
    in exchange for money. The lack of money changing hands in open
    source licensing should not be presumed to mean that there is no
    economic consideration, however. There are substantial benefits,
    including economic benefits, to the creation and distribution of
    copyrighted works under public licenses that range far beyond
    traditional license royalties.
