Open Source Identity With No Lock In

A session at OSCON 2011

Thursday 28th July, 2011

11:30am to 12:10pm (PST)

Most open source start-ups have some sort of lock on the code - dual licensing, contributor agreements, "open core" add-ons and more. But is it possible to start a profitable company without any of those - with just skilled people delivering expert service and developing new code in the community? I don't just think it's possible - I'm doing it!
