This article investigates the compatibility of the current CLARIN license categorization scheme with the open science paradigm. The first part presents the main concepts and theoretical framework required for the analysis, while the second part discusses the use of the CLARIN categorization system, divided into PUB (public), ACA (academic), and RES (restricted), and potential ways to change it. This paper serves to explore various suggestions for change and to begin discussion of a reformed CLARIN license category scheme.
