The patterns in this paper describe open source business models. Many businesses now incorporate open source, either leveraging open source to develop new products or starting their own open source projects and building their products and services around their open source offerings. The patterns in this paper aim to provide entrepreneurs, managers and students of business models with a language for creating new business models around open source, or for incorporating open source into existing business models.
