> But just to say that, while using opensource software as a tool is fine, investors and lawyers get rather nervous when opensource is used as a base program to build a game. It can limit considerably the range of licensing models that can be used and increases the risk profile of the vulnerability of the intellectual property.

True, the distinction should have been made between OpenSource apps ( FireFox, OpenOffice, Blender ) and OpenSource technology ( ODE, OGRE etc ).

Using OpenSource technology could indeed lead to a few hairy issues with publishers etc, depending on the license it uses.
