When "Open Source" Isn’t Open Source, Featuring Heather Meeker

Presented by

Heather Meeker (IP Attorney, Tech Law Partners | OSS Capital)

About this talk

Over the years, the line between open source and proprietary software licenses has blurred. Today, source-available licenses (which make source code available but impose license limitations) are growing in popularity, especially in conjunction with open core models and commercial open source development. As a result, software licensing audits and compliance must account for a new range of licensing scenarios — but analyzing these scenarios can be easier said than done. Join Heather Meeker, one of the world’s foremost software licensing experts, on Nov. 8 for a webinar on navigating the current software licensing landscape. Heather will discuss: -Trends in source-available and dual-licensing -How to interpret and respond to multi-license scenarios -What to do if your audit reveals that you’re using source-available software -Tools that can help provide visibility into your software licenses
