- Business - Fugedaboudit! It's all about the money. Apart from the Diggers of 60's Haight-Ashbury notoriety there aren't too many examples of businesses whose model consists of giving away their stock.
- Arts - Hah! Obviously the big media companies are doing everything they can to squeeze money out of artistic endeavour. But even among the less mercantile stakeholders the main discussion is about how artists can be compensated for their creations. No-one seriously advocates that artists give away all their work for free.
- Sport - Don't get me started on the gross discrepancy between compensation and value in professional sport. And at the amateur level, sponsorship and funding organizations are recognized to be essential to promoting the continued generation of sporting "product". (Wouldn't it be great if there was a similar system of sponsorship for software developers?)
- Science - You might think this would be the exception that proves the rule. After all, sharing research results is a revered principle of scientific progress. The domain relies on publishing information openly to an even greater extent than in software development. But in my (admittedly limited) experience many scientists are actually quite protective of their intellectual property, since their livelihood depends in a direct way on amassing it and monetizing how it is dispensed. And it's well known that academic institutions pay very close attention to licensing the IP generated by them (or their employees).
Long live the anarcho-syndicalist commune of Open Source Software craftsmen!
