Co-operation among firms and communities : a new standardization process for the software industry (In French)
From a voluntary production, free software fulfil to be broadly diffused on the market side. The commercial success of these software is attented by an active participation in their development from a large number of firms. We explain this participation by the opportunities of free software development and intellectual property models for standardization process within the software industry. We analyze these opportunities by considering the cases of open consortiums where firms and communities cooperate for the creation of open software standards.
