Djordjevic, V./Dobusch, L. (eds./2014): "Generation Remix: Zwischen Popkultur und Kunst" Berlin: iRights.Media, ISBN: 978-3-944362-01-4 (de) We live in an age of remix. Creativity and culture have always drawn from previous works, but with the Internet and digital technologies, the creative re-use of works has been taken to a whole new level. The book 'Generation Remix' assembles texts on remix practices and cultures in different fields and features 40+ interviews with remix practitioners about what makes a great remix, how they struggle with contemporary copyright regulation and what is their favorite work of remix. The book project has emerged in the realm of the initiative right2remix.org (German: rechtaufremix.org).

Dobusch, L. (2008): "Windows versus Linux: Markt - Organisation - Pfad" Wiesbaden: VS-Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften, ISBN: 978-3-531-16242-3 (de) Microsoft Windows is "everyone's favorite example" for path dependence. This volume compares the attempts of four large municipal administrations in Germany and Austria (Berlin, Frankfurt/M., Munich, and Vienna) to migrate their desktop software environment from Microsoft Windows and Office to Free/Open Source Software. In doing so, the possibilities for an "innovative destruction" (Schumpeter) of monopolistic network market structures via organizational technology adoption are investigated.
