Copyleft Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le symbole du copyleft, avec un C « inversé » (tourné à gauche), est l'« opposé » du copyright (C tourné à droite). En 2009, il n'est pas reconnu comme symbole légal. Le copyleft[Note 1] est l'autorisation donnée par l'auteur d'un travail soumis au droit d'auteur (œuvre d'art, texte, programme informatique ou autre) d'utiliser, d'étudier, de modifier et de diffuser son œuvre, dans la mesure où cette même autorisation reste préservée. L'auteur refuse donc que l'évolution possible de son travail soit accompagnée d'une restriction du droit à la copie, à l'étude, ou à de nouvelles évolutions. Jeu de mots et traductions[modifier | modifier le code] Le terme copyleft est un jeu de mot construit par opposition au terme copyright. L'idée suggérée par Copyleft est donc laisser copier, en opposition avec copyright (Droit de reproduction/d'auteur).

What People Want (and How to Predict It) Companies now have unprecedented access to data and sophisticated technology that can inform decisions as never before. How successful are they at helping forecast what customers want to watch, listen to and buy? The Year 2007 was a terrible year for many big movie stars. One major exception was Will Smith, whose film “I Am Legend” set a box-office record for a movie opening in December, taking in $77 million.

The leading question Methods for predicting what consumers want have been around for decades. Findings Science-based ways to predict success will keep transforming any industry in which customers lack the time and attention to differentiate among increasing offerings.A wide variety of tools have emerged, which need to be matched to the right application.Though potent, these systems don’t replace decision making.

Open source Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La désignation open source, ou « code source ouvert », s'applique aux logiciels (et s'étend maintenant aux œuvres de l'esprit) dont la licence respecte des critères précisément établis par l'Open Source Initiative, c'est-à-dire les possibilités de libre redistribution, d'accès au code source et de création de travaux dérivés. Mis à la disposition du grand public, ce code source est généralement le résultat d'une collaboration entre programmeurs. L’open source a déjà investi tous les grands domaines du système d’information des administrations françaises[1] : environnements serveurs, domaines applicatifs, outils d’ingénierie, solutions de réseaux et sécurité. « Préhistoire »[modifier | modifier le code] Les ordinateurs des années 1960 étaient livrés avec des logiciels accompagnés de leurs sources que les clients pouvaient modifier et étendre. Histoire[modifier | modifier le code] Eric Steven Raymond avait d'abord essayé de déposer open source.
