Reps, Warranties, and Open Source Software, Featuring Jim Markwith

Presented by

Jim Markwith (JD/MBA), Managing Partner, Markwith Law PS | Andy Drukarev (FOSSA)

About this talk

Reps and warranties concerning open source software are an important — yet often overlooked — part of commercial software licensing agreements. That’s because organizations that ship products are ultimately responsible for OSS license compliance, even if the issue stems from a vendor-supplied component. This reality puts a premium on including the right reps, warranties, and indemnity provisions in commercial licensing agreements. Join Technology and Transactions Attorney Jim Markwith (JD/MBA) for a webinar discussion on several dimensions of OSS-related reps and warranties in commercial software licensing, including: -An overview of warranty provisions in common open source software licenses -How to ensure commercial software licensing agreements don’t become problematic during due diligence -Why organizations should require software vendors to deliver a whole repository (including code in source and object form) and proper attribution documentation with the deliverable -How to manage commercially licensed software as part of a comprehensive open source license compliance program
