Ignoring open source hazardous to firms' health

Mark Brunelli writes "Companies that choose to ignore open source software (OSS) do so at their own risk, according to a new report from IT research firm The 451 Group.

"While open source has the potential to bring about significant profits, the report also found a potential downside in that -- if used improperly -- open source strategies can do severe damage to software vendors' licensing schemes and to the legal definitions of intellectual property.""
