Business Models for Open Source with Dual Licensing
August 2007– I wote a research paper together with my colleague Jesper Holck while I was at the Copenhagen Business School:
A Framework Analysis of Business Models for Open Source Software Products with Dual Licensing
Working Paper, CBS/INF, No. 1, January 2007

Aim of this research is to identify the key elements that play a significant role in the success of business models for companies which produce software products based on open source using dual licensing. For that we have defined a new framework analysis that can be used to evaluate existing and new business models.
