For the past 30 years, Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) has been gaining popularity, not only as an academic tool for research, but also at the enterprise level as a powerful and cost-effective alternative to proprietary software. At the same time, large organizations push for open standards and the new phenomenon of open hardware has quickly become a multi-million dollar industry.
It is becoming more and more obvious that innovation in electronics and software does not necessarily require strict copyright and patenting in order to make a good business model. On the contrary, there are many cases where "open innovation" can lead to better products, larger customer bases, better corporate visibility and reduced development costs.
The people at Logikon Labs have been actively following all these developments for more than fifteen years with great interest and are today in a position to offer solid advice in the field of open innovation, to help in selecting the proper open licensing scheme and to assist our customers in making the most of this new business model.
