The Secrets to Establishing an Open Source Foundation

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Tue, 02/24/2015 - 17:30
Webinar

Today, open source projects range from a few developers collaborating on a module of code to thousands of engineers working together on a multi-million line code base (such as the Linux Kernel). While the vast majority of open source project collaboration is supported on a virtual basis solely by forges (like GitHub), an increasing number of projects are supported by standalone legal entities that can provide additional types of legal and other support. Projects benefit from this support, whether they already exist (for example, Apache, Eclipse, or the Linux Foundation), are new standalone legal entities, or are even a combination of both (e.g., incorporated entities supported by another organization). Some of these entities are primarily community supported and funded by donations (like the OpenDocument Foundation), while others are supported by many of the largest IT companies in the world (like OpenStack, AllSeen and OpenDaylight).

In this webinar, Andy Updegrove, corporate legal counsel for the Linux Foundation, and Bill Weinberg, Senior Director of Open Source Strategy at Black Duck Software, will discuss:

  • What resources are available under each of these alternatives
  • Advantages and disadvantages of each
  • How to decide which alternative may be best for a new initiative you may be considering launching
  • How to plan and execute the launch of that new project
