The last years Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) has rapidly been shifting from a model driven purely by the developer community and university support to one where a main driver is industry. Even though a lot of firms have the chance to follow a free ride approach, they choose to contribute to the FLOSS communities with various ways. So, an obvious question is why firms decide to contribute to FLOSS communities. Which are these factors that lead them to be heavily involved in the FLOSS communities? The theory of Planned Behavior along with the Tragedy of the Commons and Digital Commons, and the state-of-the-art research on FLOSS 2.0 is the theoretical basis of this research-in-progress work.
