Correction: Valve's implementation of OpenVR for the HTC Vive is not open-source. That repo is for the open API instead. Which means any vendor can implement it and instantly have access to the entire OpenVR content library. Such as the Valve-created open-source driver for the Razer Hydra, Razer's implementation of OpenVR for its HDK headsets or PSMoveService.

True, but it's a free & open standard. Some standards are open (meaning anyone can read them), but not free. Back when SGI owned OpenGL, it was open, but you had to pay a fee to implement it.

That's correct, however, the article was stating it was open source, which is not true. It's a pit peeve of mien when people get them wrong as an OSS advocate.
