MasterBook is one of the systems developed by good old West End Games of D6 Star Wars fame. It was based on the system used in TORG, an at the time very popular and unusual game back in the 1990s.

Looks interesting at first glance, but closer reading reveals that they can withdraw the licence at any time with them being the sole arbiters of taste. Also, nothing gets the licence unless and until it has been reviewed by one of their staff first (and even then they can revoke the licence afterwards0.
It's a licence, but it's not an open licence.
