One important issue to discuss is under which license all our reproducible code and information should go. Currently most of our stuff is under GPL, but that does not permit even ourselves to commercialize things later. All derived code and products have to necessarily go under GPL too in that case. So maybe not that great if someone would want to do a startup based on his PhD research.

Actually, you can sell software under a GPL licence ( I don't know if it's an efficient way to make money though...
