    Actually DSD is open source, as far as I am aware.
    The SACD specification however (contained in the Scarlet Book), must be licensed (from Philips).

    From a more technical point of view the blog posts of Archimago from this week and the one before,
    can provide a deeper insight in the MQA processes:
