Abstract [en]

The fast growing Open source development methodology has recently become more popular as more and more software developers and corporations are utilizing and developing Open source software. It is commonly known that Open source enables development possibilities that are restricted in the production of proprietary software (i.e. Closed source). A big difference between the two approaches is the Open source licenses, which allow software creators to manage the restrictiveness of distribution and third-party development rights. Although Open source offers these valuable tools, many of the projects encounter difficulties that ultimately lead to their failure. This thesis focuses on identifying the risks of Open source projects in the fields of development and licensing while also offering suitable methods that can either prevent or minimize the damage inflicted by them.

Abstract [sv]

Den snabbt växande Open source metodiken har nyligen blivit mer populär eftersom fler och fler människor och företag är benägna att använda och utveckla öppen källkod. Det är allmänt känt att Open source ger utvecklingsmöjligheter som är begränsade i produktionen av proprietär programvara (d.v.s. Closed source). En stor skillnad mellan de två metoderna är Open Source-licenser, som gör att utvecklarna kan hantera restriktiviteten gällande distribution och tredjepartsutveckling. Även om Open source erbjuder dessa värdefulla verktyg, stöter många av projekten på svårigheter som leder till misslyckande. Den här avhandlingen fokuserar på att identifiera riskerna med Open source-projekt inom utveckling och licensiering samtidigt som den erbjuder lämpliga metoder som antingen kan förhindra eller minimera skadorna av dem.
