Successful business model are possible when people share similar values, so
we tend to amplify values with the lowest common denominators and reducing
important values to fit the largest possible audience.
One business solution is to sell "products", because everybody understand
that model. Strangely enough, some people prefer to buy Gnu/Linux
distributions in a shrinkwrap box filled with air and accompanied by a
small installation booklet.
Maybe work done for PD could be shrinkwrapped, with lots of usefull bells
and whistles, but I believe a service model would be better suited, since
the PD community prefer to use free (both as in beer and speech) resources.

Sadly, ethic is considered when its application is very confortable and its
precepts easy to forget without causing too much damages. Instant
gratification, both material and spiritual, are usually good sellers.
