- Open partnership
- Open source
- Open service
A competitive market puts pressure against producer margins, while a competitive producer pursues differentiation to support positive margins in its effort to maximize profit. An open commercial producer works no differently.
A company founded on open commercial principles is organized differently from a volunteer open source community like Mozilla. It is chartered commercially, and the contributions of its participants are recognized as economic and commercial. The free open source product is there, and the commercial product is there.
These are founding constraints from which a variety of open problems require solutions. The solutions in this case are not entirely decided.
Knock on wood.
