Non Proprietary Status of the DO Architecture
The DONA Foundation (“Foundation”) is aware of assertions made by several parties that the Digital Object Architecture (“DOA” or “DO Architecture”) is proprietary. These assertions are untrue. In late 2016, CNRI also posted a statement about this subject. The responsibility for evolving the DOA was transferred to DONA in 2014 by CNRI, the organization that developed it in the first place.
