OpenCola

Dari entri di Wikipedia:

OpenCola is a brand of cola unique in that the instructions for making it are freely available and modifiable. Anybody can make the drink, and anyone can modify and improve on the recipe as long as they, too, license their recipe under the GNU General Public License. The legal grounds for this are dubious, however, as recipes are exempted from copyright as they are techniques, not artworks.

OpenCola berbasis di Toronto, Kanada – didirikan oleh Grad Conn, Cory Doctorow (Boingboing) dan John Henson. wikiHow punya cara membuat yang lebih detil disini.
Idenya bagus, tapi apakah resep minuman/makanan dapat dilisensikan? Tidak menurut artikel ini. Itu sebabnya Coca Cola, Pepsi, atau bahkan Krusty Krab  tidak mematenkan resep mereka. Karena untuk mematenkan resep mereka harus mempublikasikan resep itu, maka mereka lebih memilih merahasiakannya. IMHO
