Open Source on the other hand is a system used in the history for distributing knowledge. There was no patents for inventions done in China like paper, Arabs like algebra or by Indians like Cotton Gin.
The future will be more Open Source than current close system approach of IPOs. The main reason is the culture difference of new world powers (China, India) from European way of life. Culturally the people living in China, India, Brazil or other emerging markets are more open to share. For Example in India and China the cost of a Book is a cost of copying it with photo copy machine and cost of Software is the cost of copying a CD. The IPO model of innovation will not work in these communities. The innovation in these countries will be open and the speed of innovation will be accelerated due to the free availability of knowledge.

It is no secert that in the Manufacturing/Export space China had crossed industrial nations. Most of the analyst in Europe/USA thinks that in innovation we are still leading and China is far behind. I respectfully disagree, if you see the IPC (Patents) statistics it is quite visible that China and India are innovating with much faster pace as anticipated. IoT is just an other example, if you go to search on Google for IEEE_802.15.4 (IEEE standard for physical layer WPANs) there will be more sites in Chinese on the first page than in English.
