Program

Open source software (OSS) has emerged, from its "free software" roots, into the mainstream, having changed the way that software is developed throughout the tech industry. As the decades pass, the role of software grows, the meaning of "mainstream" expands, and open source becomes relevant to a broadening variety of business activity. Why should commercial enterprises pay attention to open source? What legal and business considerations arise from interacting with open source communities, first as a user and later as a participant? How can you help your company successfully navigate in this open source world?

Topics to be covered include:

  • What is open source software?

  • Common misconceptions about open source.

  • What are the characteristics of open source licenses

  • What are the associated software development practices

  • Why doesn't open source fade away

  • Compliance

  • Open source in an M&A context
