I agree with the point that the creative spark is not communitarian. My point -- if we are to use Eric Raymond's book as an example (see Raymond's busness model "8 Free the Software, Sell the Brand") -- is that dual licensing IS an authentic open source model.

This is just words, but anyway: dual-licensing involves a closed source license as much as an open one; in business terms, even more, because that's where the money is. So dual-licensing is really less an "open source model" than a "closed" one. I'd really like to be shown any essential flaw in this reasoning. But as I said, it's just words, academic, not important, not pressing, don't waiste your time. Thanks.
