About this talk

Open source software is an important part of mainstream software development organizations. Active open source use in development can drive down costs, speed time to market and increase software functionality, all without adding to the bottom line. And yet, even as it has become mainstream, open source is often misunderstood by legal professionals. With over two thousand different licenses in use today, it can be difficult to properly manage open source and ensure compliance. In this webinar, top open source legal experts Mark Radcliffe (Partner at DLA Piper and General Counsel for the Open Source Initiative) and Tony Decicco (Shareholder, GTC Law Group) will cover: - Brief history and definition of open source - The most popular open source licenses and their obligations - Permissive licenses vs. Restrictive licenses
