2 / 45
Part 1
Basis about software licenses and
business models
3 / 45
Free / Open Source
Software
Free Software Definition.
– Four freedoms (see www.gnu.org).
Open Source Definition.
– Ten criteria (see opensource.org).
4 / 45
Software licenses (1/2)
Three types of licenses:
– Proprietary licenses.
• E.g. CLUF for Microsoft softwares.
– Hybrid licences (rare).
• E.g. former SCSL for Sun Microsystems softwares.
– Free software licenses.
• E.g. AL, BSD, GPL, LGPL,...
• More or less 70 free software licenses.
5 / 45
Software licenses (2/2)
6 / 45
Free software licenses
(1/2)
Two families of free software licenses:
– Permissive / academic licenses.
– Copyleft / restrictive licenses (licenses with
reciprocity).
Three types of licenses with
reciprocity.
– Weak reciprocity.
• File-based, or not.
– Strong reciprocity.
– Network reciprocity.
7 / 45
Free software licenses
(2/2)
8 / 45
Business models for free and
open source softwares (1/2)
Trade-off between value creation and
value capture.
– Value creation:
• Investment in R&D.
• Collaboration with community (open source
innovation).
– Value capture:
• Weak appropriability regime.
• Often: indirect valuation (eg. services, advertising,
etc.).
9 / 45
Business models for free and
open source softwares (2/2)
Services (« best knowledge here »).
– Common services: custom software development,
installation and integration, training, etc.
– New SaaS and cloud computing opportunities.
Dual licensing schemes.
– Without technical differenciation.
– With technical differentiation.
– Opencore schemes (e.g. free kernel + private add-
ons).
10 / 45
Part 2
Business models of open hardware
11 / 45
What is open hardware ?
Definition from Open Hardware Summit and
then Open Source Hardware Association.
– See details at http://www.oshwa.org/definition/.
Inspired by Open Source Definition from Open
Source Initiative (opensource.org).
More communly accepted than previous
definitions.
New initiative: OHANDA label (see
www.ohanda.org).
12 / 45
Open Source Hardware
(OSHW) Definition 1.0 (1/3)
1. Documentation
– The hardware must be released with documentation including design files,
and must allow modification and distribution of the design files.
2. Scope
– The documentation for the hardware must clearly specify what portion of
the design, if not all, is being released under the license.
3. Necessary Software
– If the licensed design requires software, the interfaces must be
sufficiently documented or the necessary software must be released
under an OSI-approved open source license.
4. Derived Works
– The license shall allow modifications and derived works, and shall allow
them to be distributed under the same terms as the license of the original
work.
13 / 45
Open Source Hardware
(OSHW) Definition 1.0 (2/3)
5. Free redistribution
– The license shall not restrict any party from selling or giving away the project
documentation.
6. Attribution
– The license may require derived documents, and copyright notices associated
with devices, to provide attribution to the licensors when distributing design files,
manufactured products, and/or derivatives thereof.
7. No Discrimination Against Persons or Groups
– The license must not discriminate against any person or group of persons.
8. No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor
– The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the work (including
manufactured hardware) in a specific field of endeavor.
14 / 45
Open Source Hardware
(OSHW) Definition 1.0 (3/3)
9. Distribution of License
– The rights granted by the license must apply to all to whom the work is
redistributed without the need for execution of an additional license by
those parties.
10. License Must Not Be Specific to a Product
– The rights granted by the license must not depend on the licensed work
being part of a particular product.
11. License Must Not Restrict Other Hardware or Software
– The license must not place restrictions on other items that are
aggregated with the licensed work but not derivative of it.
12. License Must Be Technology-Neutral
– No provision of the license may be predicated on any individual
technology, specific part or component, material, or style of interface or
use thereof.
15 / 45
Protection of hardware
(1/3)
Some items to protect:
– the source code for electronics (e.g.: VHDL or Verilog source
codes),
– the source code for associated softwares (e.g. development
tools, SDK, etc.),
– the schematics, the design files and the technical drawings
(hardware design),
– the aesthetic value,
– the documentations,
– the brands.
IP tools: mainly copyrights, industrial design rights,
patents and trademarks.
– Other: protection for the topographies of semiconductor
products.
16 / 45
Protection of hardware
(2/3)
Frequent use of Creative Commons
licenses.
– Attention to NC clause.
Frequent use of widely used free
software licenses.
– Mainly BSD, GPL and LGPL.
Dedicated licenses.
– Examples: TAPR OHL (see www.tapr.org/ohl.html)
or CERN OHL (see www.ohwr.org/cernohl).
17 / 45
Protection of hardware

Licenses in real life (Viseur, 2012):
18 / 45
Business models of open
hardware
Business models in real life (Viseur,
2012):
19 / 45
Size of the market (1/2)
Strong rise of the number of projects
(Torrone & Fried, 2010):
20 / 45
Size of the market (2/2)
Report from (Torrone & Fried, 2010):
– 13 companies representing approximately $50
million.
– About 200 projects in 2010.
– By 2015: +$1 billion collective.
21 / 45
Still a blurred concept ?
Boundaries between openness and
freedom not always clear but...
– Ongoing standardization of the definition.
How open is open enough ?
– Open hardware often build on closed components.
– Community activities not always clear...
How to identify sustainable projects ?
– Think about free software success factors.
– Examples: modularity, standards, open governance
(community / ecosystem), etc.

  • 12. 12 / 45 Open Source Hardware (OSHW) Definition 1.0 (1/3) 1. Documentation – The hardware must be released with documentation including design files, and must allow modification and distribution of the design files. 2. Scope – The documentation for the hardware must clearly specify what portion of the design, if not all, is being released under the license. 3. Necessary Software – If the licensed design requires software, the interfaces must be sufficiently documented or the necessary software must be released under an OSI-approved open source license. 4. Derived Works – The license shall allow modifications and derived works, and shall allow them to be distributed under the same terms as the license of the original work.
  • 13. 13 / 45 Open Source Hardware (OSHW) Definition 1.0 (2/3) 5. Free redistribution – The license shall not restrict any party from selling or giving away the project documentation. 6.

No Discrimination Against Persons or Groups – The license must not discriminate against any person or group of persons. 8. No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor – The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the work (including manufactured hardware) in a specific field of endeavor.
  • 14. 14 / 45 Open Source Hardware (OSHW) Definition 1.0 (3/3) 9. Distribution of License – The rights granted by the license must apply to all to whom the work is redistributed without the need for execution of an additional license by those parties. 10. License Must Not Be Specific to a Product – The rights granted by the license must not depend on the licensed work being part of a particular product. 11. License Must Not Restrict Other Hardware or Software – The license must not place restrictions on other items that are aggregated with the licensed work but not derivative of it. 12. License Must Be Technology-Neutral – No provision of the license may be predicated on any individual technology, specific part or component, material, or style of interface or use thereof.
