A definition of OA for the German Parliament

Today the scientific services (Wissenschaftliche Dienste) of the German Parliament (Deutscher Bundestag) published a two-page document by Daniel Lübbert defining and explaining OA, Open Access: Freier Zugang zu wissenschaftlicher Information

PS:  Recall that the Bundestag is now debating the evolving OA policy for Europe.  The Lübbert definition is based on the Berlin Declaration but I can't tell whether it subtly spins the concept to help or hurt the case for OA.  Because the document is a PDF, I can't link to a machine translation.
