The course book its focused on the study of Free Software in relation with the private sector and related economic aspects. We analyse the software industry from an economic perspective: how it was affected by software licensed under free conditions and what is its potential for the future. On the other hand, we study how to use Free Software in the private sector, from a development view but also in implementation and migration.
