Introduction to Open Source Software Licenses
This Webinar, presented by Black Duck with Karen Copenhaver, partner at Choate Hall & Stewart and Counsel for the Linux Foundation and Mark Radcliffe, partner at DLA Piper and General Counsel for the Open Source Initiative (OSI), covers the basics of open source, including open source definitions, different types of licenses, and the commonly used licenses.
Open source software has significant benefits and is free, but it is not free of obligations. Gartner Research recently found that 85 percent of companies currently use open source software, but governance and lack of policy is the #1 challenge faced by users. With over 1,400 different licenses available today, each with their own obligations, it can be difficult to properly manage the use of open source. Webinar attendees will learn the basics and advance their ability to reap the benefits of open source while managing the associated risks.
