The Latest Legal Developments in Open Source

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Fri, 05/09/2014 - 16:30

Open source software (OSS) has become a fundamental part of the IT infrastructure of virtually all companies. Such criticality naturally gives rise to legal issues as organizations protect their own interests in the context the sharing inherent with open source.

Recently there has been a shift from enforcement activity by non-profits to commercial entities with two lawsuits which enforce the GPLv2 being filed by commercial  companies in 2013. One of the lawsuits involves GPLv2 licensed code im a commercial product and has broader impacts for both commercial and open source  companies. Patent activity around open source has continued apace and contribution agreements are getting more attention as companies evolve from consuming open source to contribution back.

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), will review:

  • The rise in importance of open source for commercial entities
  • Explain the lastest developments for OSS licenses, patents and contributor agreements.
