Så sigt kan vi ende i en situation hvor OSS projekter kan
konkurrere med kommercielle produkter fx. gimp vs. illustrator,
og linux vs. MS, og staroffice vs. word osv. Men hvor kommercielle
produkter kan gøre livet besværligt for OSS produkter pga. 
software patenter. Så længe de kommercielle firmaer ikke er truet,
så vil de formodeligt ikke spilde tid på OSS produkter. Det er 
udelukkende patent parasit firmaer uden egne software produkter,
andet end salg af patent licenser der går efter OSS fx. Thompson.

OSS kan konkurrere på alle parametre undtagen patent beskyttelse
af algoritmer/dataformater/protokoller.

Fx. når CMYK 4-farve separation er umuligt at implentere i GIMP,
så begrænser det kunderne fordi professionelle grafikere har brug
for at kunne lave farve separation.

Når GIF og muligvis PNG ikke kan gemmes med OSS produkter, så
må alle ikoner på websites laves med Jpg, hvilket ikke er optimalt.
Og Jpg2000 er vist patenteret.
