New approaches to biological knowledge and technology, such as the attempts to establish open access and open-source practices to key biotech methods and processes are currently being negotiated.

A plenitude of licensing modes has been developed in the past and with success in the digital world. Despite the essential achievements, there exists no similar licensing model for the life sciences.
