An anonymous reader writes: I am considering the impact on business if our company open sources a valuable piece of software that is currently not addressed in the open source market. I would like FOSS distribution of the desktop. We have other software that will still be proprietary and licensed. We have no issues with our many years of work offering the market a FOSS. However, we would like to make money on our other software and need to protect against someone taking our "complete" software and competing against us or ruining our server software business. What are the suggestions on licensing ? We want to become good members of the open source community but also as a company make some money (on the other software not services/support).
