What Every Attorney Needs to Know About Open Source Licenses and Their Obligations: Open Source Software 101 (On-Demand)

$109.00

Virtually every organization uses open-source software in the development of software products. By leveraging such open-source software and the open-source communities that maintain and improve it, companies can reduce costs, accelerate time to market, and access global software innovation. Such use is not without obligation, however; companies must comply with sometimes complex sets of licensing terms that govern the use of open-source software. Left unmanaged, the use of open-source software may pose serious legal, security, and operational risks to the business.
