Review: Open Source Strategies for the Enterprise

Open Source Strategies for the Enterprise by Simon Phipps has two running themes, Classification of communities around open source projects and criticism of Open Core business model. Keeping the theme, title is little misleading even though Phipps has covered the themes in very apt manner.

Phipps also touches copyright and patent issues w.r.t. open source but if not in depth. I am certainly looking for a comprehensive book on issues shrouding open source like abandoned projects, an open source project becoming closed due to variety of reasons, forking of projects due to various reasons, support of open source usage in enterprise environment, etc.
