Aaron Schiff
Published Online: 2002-03-01 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1446-9022.1004

This paper reviews the recent literature on the economics of open source software. Two different sets of issues are addressed. The first looks at the incentives of programmers to participate in open source projects. The second considers the business models used by profit-making firms in the open source industry, and the effects on existing closed source firms. Some possible future research directions are also given.
