Buyer and Seller Perspectives on Open Source in Tech Contracts

Presented by

Phil Odence, Black Duck Software and David Tollen, Tech Contracts Academy

About this talk

Join Black Duck and Tech Contracts Academy as they discuss the implications of open source software in tech contracts. The topic of open source has been at the forefront of the technology industry for many years, but as the use of open source in commercial applications explodes, so do concerns about addressing license and ownership issues in contract negotiations. David Tollen is the founder of Tech Contracts Academy (www.TechContracts.com) and of Sycamore Legal P.C., in San Francisco. He’s the author of The Tech Contracts Handbook: Cloud Computing Agreements, Software Licenses, and Other IT Contracts for Lawyers and Businesspeople. He will dive into these topics from the perspective of both buyers and sellers and will aim to educate participants on Intellectual Property (IP) protection and other terms and how they should work during contract negotiations.
