How do you open your design for remixing and free re-use while still building a profitable business?

Global currents in technology are hinting towards an emerging major trend of tossing patents and copyrights in favor of building communities of co-creators as a way to scale and accelerate business. This is not only in software, but increasingly also for physical products. How do you open your design for remixing and free re-use while still building a profitable business? Hardware companies, makers, business developers and other curious festival audience are welcome at this presentation and Q&A to explore together with REMODEL how manufacturing businesses can use open source methodology to develop environmentally sustainable and economically sound business models for physical products.
