Virtually every organization uses open source software, and lots of it, to create efficiencies in software development. But left unmanaged, open source can introduce legal, IP, compliance, and other risks for the business. With over 2,500 different licenses in use, legal professionals and technical managers need to understand the license obligations associated with open source and how to mitigate risks.
Join top open source legal experts Mark Radcliffe from DLA Piper and Tony Decicco from GTC Law Group for a webinar as they do a deep dive into the types of open source licenses that could present challenges. They’ll cover:
•The history and risk of open source software
•Intellectual property law for software licensing
•The most popular licenses and their obligations
•Practical advice for helping your organizations or clients
