Les régimes de l'open source : solidarité, innovation et modèles d'affaires

Abstract : Open source software (OSS) has led to important industrial transformations. The extent and intensity of this phenomenon require a theoretical discussion of some subjects in management sciences. This thesis deals with the impact of OSS and summarizes the main issues of its dissemination. We show firstly that the original model of OSS development comes from the combination of a system of solidarity and a distributed production process. Next, we describe new interactions between commercial and non-commercial activities which lead to new and original organizations. Then, we present the ways in which these pieces of software are used as standard components by industrial groups to generate value. We also describe other strategies which are aimed at using various technological means to bypass the rules of OSS licences. And finally, we suggest that most innovations created by open source organizations are aimed at remedying failures of the market-oriented system.
