KnowledgeTree co-founders explain their commercial open source business strategy (video)

Author: Robin 'Roblimo' Miller

KnowledgeTree produces document management software that is available either under GPLv3 or, for commercial use, under a proprietary license that restricts code redistribution. In this video, KnowledgeTree co-founders John Thorne and Daniel Chalef explain why they decided to go open source, the differences between their open source and proprietary versions, and why supporting a "community version" helps both the company and KnowledgeTree's many users.
