Abstract [en]

The Open source and Open content movement is in progress. This paper analyses the emergence of new business opportunities, as well as potential conflicts with legal frameworks designed for IPR owners. Data is presented from interviews with a representative sample of Swedes as well as a questionnaire to a more specialized sample of experienced users with an IT background. What kind of activities are they engaged in? What are the driving forces? Ordinary Internet users are usually not aware of open source programs even if they use them. But they are participating more and more producing content and sharing content on websites and online communities. The more experienced and advanced users are well acquainted with both, they are using it and a lot of them take part in the creation of content and the development of the software. However, it seems that the open source/open content movement is rapidly emerging as an essential alternative incentive for creativity compared to the traditional IPR regime. Maybe the two approaches are even on a collision course.
