Open Format: what do you mean by that?

There are many proposal definitions of Open Format, reported by wikipedia (see previous post) to the IDA migration guidelines one, that says:

Open Standard protocols are defined as those which are free from patents and with an OSS implementation

Open Formats, a site managed by volunteers like Dario Taraborelli, has its own too.

So, what about a “Free Format” definition?
