Muselli, Laure (2008) Open strategies, open source strategies and the issue of value capture in the software industry.

Commercial software is traditionally governed by proprietary licenses that allow usage in exchange for a fee. Since the 90’s, more and more commercial software publishers have switched to open source and hybrid licenses Open source licenses allow users to freely download, copy, modify and distribute software whereas hybrid licenses place certain restrictions on freedom. Using Teece’s concept of regime of appropriability (Teece, 1986), we highlight the strategic role of software licenses in both open and open source strategies, as well as the business models allowing open source software publishers to capture value in order to make some profits.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
