Comparing Open-Source Software Licenses

Chris Anderson, 3D Robotics

3DR’s Chris Anderson talks about the importance of structuring open-source projects, like the drone-maker community he helped start, in a way that they can be commercialized later, if that’s the ultimate goal. He explains how businesses, because of proprietary concerns, avoid software created under open-source licenses that require all derivative work be published for the sake of engaging more developers.
